Trump's Connection to Virginia Politics

The Donald has given money to Virginia politicians,  According to the Washington Post:
"Trump was an early supporter of fellow businessman Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the 2009 gubernatorial campaign. He gave McAuliffe a hefty $25,000 donation in March 2009, more than two months before McAuliffe lost in the Democratic primary in June.
But Trump apparently came around before November--donating $25,000 to Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) on Oct. 28, 2009, just before Election Day. (McDonnell is now a fan--he recently credited Trump with bringing straight talk to the national political debate.)"

It's hard to imagine a conservative, or even a nominal Republican giving money to Terry McAuliffe.
