Warner Trounces Gilmore in Fundraising

I knew it would be bad, but not this bad. The Roanoke Times is reporting that Mark Warner raised $3 million in the most recent quarter ending June 30th. Gilmore raised just over $400,000. Even more distressing is the difference in cash on hand. Warner is sitting on over $5 million while Gilmore has just over $100,000.

Who would have ever thought two former Governors would have such different fundraising results. Gilmore has got a great issue with energy policy, but no money to use to communicate it with the voters.

It's time for all Republicans to step up to the plate... a veto proof Senate is why VA Businessman are contributing to Warner?

Higher capital gains taxes? Higher corporate taxes? Higher personal taxes? More power for the Trial Lawyers? and the exact same energy policy we have now...

Even if Warner just flipped his position... if you're 20 points ahead in the polls, and 25 to 1 in cash, why are you changing positions Mark?

Some people need to get a grip...

We're talking six years here folks...

Some one should have seen this problem coming. Wait, almost half of the delegates at the convention did. The problem is that Gilmore is a bad candidate who is going to get killed. I don't blame anyone for waiting untell next year to give money when we have good candidates.
