McDonnell raises money for California candidates
It's another week of frenetic fundraising for Bob McDonnell.
Virginia's chief executive flew to California last weekend to help raise money for Meg Whitman, the Republican candidate for governor who is locked in a tight race with Democrat Jerry Brown. The event, attended by 300 people, raised $600,000, which included a $500,000 check from Republican Governors Association.
The fundraiser followed an event last week for Carly Fiorina, who is running for U.S. Senate in California. The Alexandria reception, attended by 75 people, raised $50,000.
Tuesday, McDonnell headlined an Arlington fundraiser for Patrick Murray, the Virginia GOP candidate facing an uphill battle for Congress against U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, and Wednesday, a Richmond fundraiser for Chuck Smith, who is running against U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).
Thursday, the governor will attend a Richmond fundraiser for Senate candidate Richard Burr of North Carolina in Richmond.
