It’s been reported that Attorney General Bob McDonnell is leading the money race in the 2009 Virginia gubernatorial election:
McDonnell, who is unopposed for the Republican nomination, raised slightly more than $1.6 million in the second half of last year, according to a report he submitted Thursday to the Virginia State Board of Elections. His campaign spent $589,000.
Terry McAulliffe, who appears to be the strongest Democrat in the race, made national news earlier this week with his fundraising raising report. It showed that he had raised “almost” one million dollars. Can we expect CNN to cover McDonnell’s huge haul? (I’m not holding my breath, either.)

Update: The Newport News Daily Press is reporting that Atty. Gen. McDonnell has $2 million in the bank.
