RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Democrat Terry McAuliffe held nearly a 2-to-1 edge in campaign cash on hand at the end of May over Republican rival Ken Cuccinelli in their head-to-head sprint to November's bellwether gubernatorial election in swing state Virginia.
Reports due Monday by statewide and legislative candidates showed McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, with $5.4 million in the bank as of May 29 to Cuccinelli's $2.7 million.
Both got huge boosts from their national parties. McAuliffe took $2 million from the Democratic Governors Association and Cuccinelli took $1 million from the Republican Governors Association.
In the biting Democratic lieutenant governor race, former Obama White House technology chief Aneesh Chopra's $427,265 was nearly triple what state Sen. Ralph Northam reported on hand.
