Governor’s PAC says it raised $1.4 million

Virginia state logoRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ A spokesman for Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee said it raised $5.7 million since last year, including $1.4 million during the last quarter. Spokesman Stephen Carter said Tuesday the PAC will report having $1.4 million cash on hand. Quarterly campaign finance reports are due Oct. 15. McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman and prodigious political fundraiser, has raised about the same amount as his predecessor, Republican Bob McDonnell, did at the corresponding time in his term in office. Carter noted that McAuliffe has also helped raise funds for the state party as well. The Democratic governor has spent heavily on a handful of upcoming legislative races to try to flip control of the state Senate.
