Deeds Raises $3.5M, $2.7M in the Bank

Anita Kumar

Democrat gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds raised $3.5 million in September and had $2.7 million in the bank going into the final month of the race.

In September, the Democratic Governors Association gave Deeds $257,500 while the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees gave him $400,000, one of several large checks Deeds received from national unions.

As of the end of September, Deeds had raised $14.2 million and McDonnell $18.9 million, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, which tracks campaign finance.

By this point in 2005, Democrat Tim Kaine had raised $15.9 million and Republican Jerry
Kilgore had raised $17.4 million.

Deeds' latest totals reflect the single highest fundraising month for the campaign so far. The campaign raised more money from more donors in September than in either of the previous two months.

Deeds received money from 3,763 total donors. Of those 2,489 of these contributors were new donors and 59 percent contributed less than $200

"We are encouraged by the enthusiasm from grassroots Virginians and the investments of the Democratic National Committee," Deeds campaign manager Joe Abbey said. "Their support will help us as we move to turn out an unprecedented Democratic vote in 19 days."

Hey - why no stories on these McDonnell votes and actions as AG? He can't be happy that his questionable past is coming out now.
