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.
|Name||Total 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.
