McAuliffe Reports Raising $4 Million in Governor Race

April 8, 2009

(AP) - The gubernatorial campaign of Democrat Terry McAuliffe says it raised $4.2 million in the first three months of 2009.

The former Democratic national chairman's campaign said Wednesday in a news release that it will report nearly $2.5 million on hand when it files its quarterly report in one week.

There was no indication in the release how much of the money came from donors outside Virginia. As former chief fundraiser to the presidential bids of Bill and Hillary Clinton, he has a vast national fundraising base.

McAuliffe entered the race in early January, airing television ads as he did - something unprecedented in Virginia governor's elections. He has a paid staff of nearly 100 people, another first.

He is in a three-person June Democratic primary race with Brian
J. Moran and state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds.
