Giuliani Racks Up Cash for RPV
There are many more GOP heavy hitters coming to Virginia in the near future; so hopefully they will be as successful as this one.
What remains to be seen is if Gillespie can really deliver the massive fundraising prowess that was advertised before his election as RPV chair. The proposed staff positions and other major expenses like the new TV ad attacking Governor Kaine will cost alot more money than the RPV has spent in the past. Fundraisers like this may help him deliver on that promise; but getting presidential candidates to Virginia a year before the primaries should be relatively easy for any party chair. The key will be delivering major fundraising with some of the other lumanaries like Elaine Chao, Tony Snow and Mary Matalin and making those fundraisers as successful as this one.
