Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

3rd District Update

It appears money is rolling into the race for Jackie Stump's vacated seat. Will Vehrs has a post about the donations in the race for the 3rd. This article says that Cook (the GOPer) has amassed $41k in donations while the democrat Bowling has raised $27k. Cook's biggest donation was $22,500 from Speaker Howell's Dominion Leadership Trust and Bowling's was $12,500 from Kaine's PAC. Cook also received $1,000 from the Valley Leadership Trust; a PAC formed by Delegates Landes, Saxman, and Cline. Most all donations to each of the candidates were from friends, family and political groups.
It looks like Cook has a good shot here. Even so, it will all come down to turnout.
