Radtke raises more than $100,000 for U.S. Senate race
Jamie Radtke, former chairwoman of the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation, raised $100,165 in the period that ended Dec. 31 in her race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2012, according to documents she sent to the Federal Elections Commission.
Radtke entered the race in December and campaign spokesman Chuck Hansen said she raised the money in just three weeks. "We're pleased,'' he said. "It shows a lot of support from conservatives across Virginia."
Radtke faces former Virginia governor and senator George Allen, who jumped into the race last month. Allen did not report money during the fundraising period because he just entered the race this year.
Sen. James Webb (D) raised over $12,000 in the fourth quarter of 2010, adding fuel to the belief in some Democratic circles that he doesn't plan to run for a second term.
At least three Republicans have said they are interested in running: Corey A. Stewart, chairman of the Prince William County board of supervisors; Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince William) and Bert Mizusawa, a businessman and lawyer who ran against U.S. Rep. Scott Rigell.
