Gore coming to Reston to raise cash for Moran
Looks like it's Presidential Also-Ran Week in Virginia's 8th congressional district.
Tonight, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will be in Alexandria to headline a fundraiser for Patrick Murray (R), the former U.S. Army colonel challenging Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D). Now it turns out Murray isn't the only one bringing a losing presidential candidate to the district.
On Sunday, former Vice President Al Gore will be in Reston as the main attraction at a Moran fundraiser, to be held at the home of Don Owens and Chris Griffin. (The hosts, a husband-and-wife team, run an insurance and financial services firm in Herndon.) The cost of entry ranges from $100 for "guests" to $1,000 apiece for "hosts."
Moran is the prohibitive favorite in the heavily Democratic 8th district, and had a massive financial advantage over Murray as of June 30.
No word yet on whether Michael Dukakis or Bob Dole might decide to wade into the race too.
