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.

Fundraising Blowout in the 23rd

In a race that began only about 2 weeks ago, democrat Shannon Valentine has spent $122,000 (she has 10k on hand) to replace Republican Del. Preston Bryant. Her biggest donations are 70k from the dem house caucus and 12,500 from the Kaine Inagural Committee.
The Republican Mike Harrington has raised 123k and has 56k on hand. His largest donations are 20k from Dominion Leadership Fund (former Speaker Wilkins PAC) and 15k in self-financing.
They both have been running TV ads and with one week left, it looks like its going to be a very close race. Republicans desperately need to defend this seat folks. Hopefully we will be successful in that endeavor.
