Boehner Lends McDonnell A Hand

Anita Kumar

We don't know yet how much Republican Bob McDonnell raised in September, but we are starting to get some hints.

We told you that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal raised $250,000 for him, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich raised $100,000, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney raised $100,000 and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty raised $75,000.

Now we learn that on the last day of the one-month reporting period, Sept. 30, U.S. House Minority Leader John Boehner headlined a fundraiser at the Alexandria home of lobbyist Bruce Gates, which brought in about $120,000.

For those of you who are doing the math, that's more than $600,000. We'll get his fundraising report on Oct. 15.

I love it. This "race" is just killing the leftist water carrying democrat stenographers at the washington compost. Give it up leftists, Deeds has absolutely no shot. Particularly now that ACORN has been crippled so badly. He may have been able to pull an Al Franken several months ago, but thanks to Andrew Breitbart, not now..

Ah, so he's getting money from Boehner, whose been proven to be a true demagogue and liar about the health-care debate (according to, along with lying about the cost of the cap-and-trade system (according to; Gingrich (another theocratic demagogue); and Pawlenty (who disingenuously filp-flopped on cap-and-trade so as to not harm his 2012 chances).

Liars and fools, all. I guess McDonnell likes to surround himself with those just like him.
