With three days to go before this finance period closes, it appears Terry McAuliffe has more money stuck in his couch cushions than Ken Cuccinelli will raise this year for Attorney General!Developing...

I will concede that Terry is a better snake oil salesman than Cooch.
Of course, Cooch has an outstanding substantive record of fighting for pro-life license plates, reduction in legalized baby killings, and preservation of God-ordained marriage.
Does Terry have a similar record in Virginia?
If not, Terry will need all those tens of millions to convince Virginia voters that he has.

Pro-life leader Mike Farris raised less money - and won more votes - than ALL of his fellow candidates, from BOTH parties, in 1993.
Hot off the presses...

Do I detect a pattern to the McAuliffe posts here?
McAuliffe is brilliant.
McAuliffe has a profound understanding of local Virginia issues.
McAuliffe is a fabulously prolific fundraiser.
McAuliffe is our only possible hope to regain control of the House.
Mcauliffe is just more super special than Hillary Clinton and Leslie Byrne rolled into one.
Why don't you just issue the endorsement of McAuliffe that we all have seen coming from miles away? Talk about telegraphing your punches! Just put the McAuliffe banner up and get it over with.

I'm still holding out hope that NLS will endorse Cooch.

Grapes, I'm not disputing what you're saying, but you're going to have to explain in more detail exactly how you arrive at that conclusion. Tell me if I'm wrong, but I believe George Allen got more votes than Farris at the Convention that year (I'm not 100% certain of that, so I apologize if I'm remembering wrong), and I know that, in the general election, Allen, Jim Gilmore, and Don Beyer got more votes than him.

What am I missing here? What is the nexis between Mcauliffe, who is running for Governor, and Cooch who is running for AG? Apples and oranges to me. What are the numbers that they have raised. You must have some basis for this "breaking story." Why not share this inside scoop?

Terry blew it for me when he got Virginia and Florida mixed up.
Meanwhile, Cuccinelli is just a cornucopia of embarrassment.

I think Grapes is talking about the convention. I am having trouble remembering after all these years (and I was not actually at the 93 convention), but I think Grapes is working on the assumption that Farris beat Kilberg by a wider margin than Allen beat Williams and Miller or Gilmore beat Agee. Thus, if most everyone voted voted in those races at the convention, one could assume that Farris got the most votes. Again, Grapes may be thinking of something else, but I think that is what he/she/it is referring to

What does one have to do with the other?
When was the last time this blog offered anything of actual interest?

I think NLS is trying to say that Cooch has a bit of difficulty raising money.

McAuliffe must be stopped. He stands for getting elected and nothing else. If he runs, Virginia goes back to red. Brian has done the hard work of becoming a credible statewide candidate and we already know Creigh will do well in southside, but Terry will drive rural Virginia back to the right. Harris Miller on steroids.
Ben, please stop pushing him on us. Have you checked to see if he supported Connolly in the primary? I'd be shocked if he didn't. Hopefully, that might bring you to your senses.

And your point is NLS? The fact that a Clinton retread with all kinds of national connections in the Dem party might be able to bring in lots of donations in a political off-year somehow is relevant to the AG race and Cuccinelli's ability to fundraise? I don't see it.
Ken will raise what he needs to win. He's been outraised by all his opponents in the past and guess what, each time he's won, and he's not even running against McAwful.

Good luck using all that money to polish a turd!

It's news to most active dems in VA that Terry even LIVES in Virginia!! This ain't the kind of state you win with money.
