Question of the Day
Republicans hope former Virginia Sen. George Allen, whose newly formed PAC has raised $55,000, and former Gov. James S. Gilmore III, who dropped out of the presidential race over the weekend, will help bridge the financial gap.
J. Scott Leake, executive director of the Virginia Senate Republican Leadership Trust, said the governor’s fundraising “does not come as a surprise.”
“We’re telling candidates that the chances of you being outspent are pretty good, so you have to work smarter and harder,” he said.
Mr. Leake insisted the outlook is not as gloomy for Republicans as Democrats portray it. Republicans are confident they will renew their strength in the Senate.
Part of the reason is the leadership trust has raised about $600,000 and unopposed incumbents should have more than $1 million for fellow Republicans.
“When we pool together all of our resources, I think our competitors will be close in resources,” Mr. Leake said.
