PRESS RELEASE: Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign announced today that he raised about $5.1 million during the first quarter.  More than 3,600 Virginians contributed, making up about 72% of the contributors.  About 74% of the donations were for $100 or less.  

McAuliffe stated of his opponent, “This strong grassroots support from Virginians stands in stark contrast to Ken Cuccinelli, whose largest backer to date is the extreme anti-abortion group Susan B Anthony List.”

“I’m grateful to the thousands of Virginians who have supported my campaign,” said Terry McAuliffe.  “Everywhere I go people are looking for a Governor who will focus on mainstream ideas to grow the economy and make Virginia the best for business, not on a divisive ideological agenda.”

“There is a stark contrast in this race in the focus of the two candidates. Terry has been traveling around Virginia talking about mainstream ideas to grow the economy,” said McAuliffe spokesman Josh Schwerin. “Ken Cuccinelli has been in DC with his biggest financial supporter, the anti-women’s health Susan B Anthony List, hiding from the public and the press to avoid questions about his divisive ideological agenda and ongoing conflict of interest scandal.”
