Keith Fimian, who is seeking to represent Virginia’s 11th District, has more cash on hand than all but four candidates who are vying for open House seats in the fall:
5. Keith Fimian, Republican, Virginia’s 11th ($1 million). Fimian, the founder of a home inspection business, is vying to succeed retiring seven-term Republican Rep. Thomas M. Davis III in a district that takes most of its population from Fairfax and Prince William Counties near Washington, D.C. This district is among the most difficult for the Republicans to hold, though Fimian — who has loaned his campaign $325,000 — will have the resources to wage a serious campaign against Gerry Connolly, a county executive whose lower cash-on-hand total ($275,000) owes to his big spending ahead of his victory in a four-candidate Democratic primary in June. Fimian was unopposed for the Republican nomination, so he’s spent a much smaller share of his campaign receipts than Connolly.
While $1 million may seem like a lot of money, the District is in the expensive metro DC advertising market, which will likely eat up most of that figure.
This is a great chance not only to hold a GOP House seat, but to get a Republican into this district who is more conservative than the retiring Republican incumbent, Rep. Tom Davis.
