McDonnell raises money in time for next year's elections

Anita Kumar

Is Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) already gearing up for next year's legislative races?

McDonnell's political action committee. Opportunity Virginia, recently announced a number of fundraisers for this fall as he looks to stockpile cash perhaps to keep control of the House of Delegates and gain control of the state Senate next year.

McDonnell has fundraisers scheduled for Sept. 30 in Richmond ($25,000 per couple), Oct. 7 in Richmond ($5,000 host committee, $1,000 for person and PAC), Oct. 15 in Virginia Beach ($5,000 per couple, host committee and for private dinner, $1,000 per couple and for reception), Oct. 23 in Charlottesville (no prices announced yet) and Nov. 30 in Northern Virginia ($5,000 host committee, $1,000 per person)

McDonnell's PAC is not doing too bad. As of June 30, he had $778,222 cash on hand, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, which tracks money in politics.

And last week, we reported that Opportunity Virginia had brought in more than $100,000 in July and August in donations of $10,000 or more.
