McAuliffe lends the Farm Team a hand raising money
Terry McAuliffe, former Democratic National Committee chairman, is hosting a fundraiser for the Farm Team, a group created to help women seek public office, as he looks to stay active in state politics in Virginia in advance of the 2013 elections.
McAuliffe and his wife, Dorothy, will host a Sept. 26 reception for the Farm Team -- one of the main fundraisers for the group this year -- at their McLean home. His wife has been involved with the organization before, but it's McAuliffe's first time hosting an event.
McAuliffe's spokesman Levar Stoney said his boss heard about the event and wanted to help. See the invite.
The Women of Courage and Truth reception will feature the unveiling of a portrait of 16-year-old Barbara Johns, who was at the forefront of the movement to end school segregation in the 1950s.
McAuliffe, who lost his party's nomination for governor last year, is widely expected to make another run for governor in 2013.
As we told you last week, Sen. Don McEachin is also considering running for governor. Others who are interested or being recruited: House Minority Leader Ward Armstrong, U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly, Sen. Chap Petersen of Fairfax County and former Del. Shannon Valentine, who lost her Lynchburg-area seat in November.
