Cuccinelli Outriases Shannon with Historic Fundraising Period
July 16, 2009
In the last fundraising period Ken Cuccinelli ouraised his opponent, Steve Shannon, by $7,000.00. Ken Cuccinelli raised $291,704 and Steven Shannon raised $284,733. (Contrary to what the Richmond Times Dispatch may write this actually means Ken raised more money.) Not only did Ken outraise Steve, but he also had the most donations. He had 292 donations greater than $100.00 compared with Shannon’s 238. On donations of $100.00 or less Cuccinelli had 487 more than eight times as much as Steve Shannon’s 57. If donors are votes Ken Cuccinelli is in good shape.
Not only did Ken outraise Steve Shannon this quarter, he pulled in a historic haul. According to Chris Lacivita,
“This was more than the last two GOP candidates for attorney general, Bob McDonnell and Jerry W. Kilgore, raised in the same period, campaign consultant Chris LaCivita said. It also includes no national GOP money, he said.”
