Senate District 37 candidates get final influxes of cash
The two candidates for Virginia's 37th district state Senate seat are getting late influxes of cash before Tuesday's special election, according to figures released by the Virginia Public Access Project.
Since 5 p.m. Wednesday, second-term Del. David W. Marsden (D-Fairfax) received more than $32,000 in in-kind donations from the state Democratic Party and $9,500 in individual contributions, including donations from U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe, lobbyist Emanuel Rouvelas and philanthropist William Soza.
Stephen M. "Steve" Hunt, a member of the Fairfax County School Board from 2003 to 2007, received $2,000 in contributions from publisher Thomas L. Phillips and Tampa Republican Party donor Bobby Charles Thompson.
For Marsden, the extra donations push his campaign total to more than $410,000. Hunt is at about $240,000. Most of both of those totals come from in-kind donations -- paid staffers, campaign offices, signs, etc. -- from their respective state parties.
