McDonnell Enters General Election Campaign in Good Shape
In addition to being ahead of his possible Democrat opponents in the polls, Bob McDonnell has more good news. His Campaign announced today that it had nearly $4.9 Million Cash on Hand, and raised $3.7 Million from April 1st-May 27th. The campaign said it raised $3.7 million during this period with the help of 2,159 individual donors.
Speaking about the fundraising numbers campaign manager Phil Cox noted, “We continue to build the resources we need to win this November. And we are doing this while our potential opponents are waging an expensive and increasingly negative primary race. This is a crucial advantage as we take Bob McDonnell’s positive message of new jobs and more opportunities to every voter in Virginia. We thank each of our 2,159 individual donors. This is a campaign with growing momentum, a positive vision, and broad support.
Last weekend, Bob McDonnell officially accepted the Republican Party’s nomination for Governor. McDonnell is traveling the state today with Lt. Governor Bill Bolling and Attorney General candidate, Ken Cuccinelli on the “Just Say Yes” Republican Ticket Tour of Virginia. The tour is stopping in Southwest Virginia, Roanoke, the Shenandoah Valley, Northern Virginia, Fredericksburg and Hampton Roads.
