Anita Kumar

For the second time in the last year, former presidential candidate Fred Thompson has helped Republican Robert F. McDonnell raise a heap of cash for his campaign for governor.

Thompson brought in $170,000 for McDonnell at a fundraiser Saturday in Charlottesville, according to McDonnell's campaign.

The former Tennessee senator headlined an event at the Farmington County Club attended by 75 people.

A June 2008 event in Virginia Beach raised more than $300,000.

McDonnell raised $2.2 million in his campaign in the three-month period that ended March 31 with the help from Thompson, Arizona Sen. John McCain, former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

Thompson, who owns a house in McLean, is well-known outside the political world. He played New York District Attorney Arthur Branch on the Emmy Award-winning NBC drama Law & Order and has appeared in more than 20 films, including Days of Thunder and The Hunt for Red October.
