Rove, Romney helping out Comstock in Mclean

Amy Gardner

Republican Barbara J. Comstock, who is challenging state Del. Margi Vanderhye in the McLean-based 34th House District, will hold a fundraiser Tuesday headlined by Karl Rove.

And Comstock will appear with former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Sunday at a fundraiser in the home of former solicitor general Ted Olson and his wife, Lady Booth Olson.

Comstock comes by her big-name contacts naturally: She is the former director of public affairs for the Department of Justice; the former chief counsel for the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and a former senior aide to U.S. Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.). She is a founding partner of Corallo Comstock, a lobbying and public relations firm.

Comstock's Washington connections have served her campaign purse well. At the end of June, Comstock had outraised first-term delegate Vanderhye, with $167,000 in the bank, putting the 34th District on the map as one to watch in Northern Virginia. Check back with us Tuesday to see if the latest reports show more of the same.
