ROANOKE, Va. – Although former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe hasn’t announced plans to run for governor, he certainly has far more funding than his would-be opponents.

He previously announced that his political action committee, Common Good VA, raised $1.7 million in the first half of 2020.

McAuliffe served as the Governor of Virginia from 2014 to 2018.

Now that mid-year-campaign finance reports have been submitted, we can see where those who are actually in the race stand.

NameTotal Raised in First Half of 2020
Jennifer Carroll Foy (D)$810,790
Jennifer McClellan (D)$490,374
Amanda Chase (R)$227,364
Mark Herring (D)$24,158
Justin Fairfax (D)$19,416

Adding up the amounts of all five declared candidates above, it gets to $1,572,102, still short of what Common Good VA raised.
