Shannon Receives $225K Boost

Anita Kumar

The Democratic Attorneys General Association donated $225,000 to Steve Shannon, the Democratic nominee for attorney general, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, which tracks campaign donations in the state.

The group gave Shannon $25,000 in May and an additional $50,000 in August. It is by far his largest contributor.

The latest donation came Wednesday, the final day of the one-month reporting period, when candidates are scrambling to raise every last cent.

As of Aug. 31, Shannon had a two-to-one financial advantage over Republican Ken Cuccinelli, who faced two Republicans to win his party's nomination. Shannon had $1.6 million compared with Cuccinelli's $750,000, according to VPAP.
