McAuliffe Raises More Than $1 Million in First Month of Campaign

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe's gubernatorial campaign raised more money in December of 2012 alone than Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli raised during the entire second half of last year. But Cuccinelli enters 2013 with a slightly larger warchest.

McAuliffe hauled in $1.15 million during a 27-day period since the start of his campaign on Dec. 5. The likely Democratic nominee banked "just over" $1 million, according to a statement. Meanwhile, Cuccinelli raised $1.07 million in the second half of 2012 and closed the year with $1.18 million cash on hand.

The next filing period is likely to show an even greater gap between McAuliffe and Cuccinelli as the attorney general and all state lawmakers are barred from raising campaign cash during the 45-day session of the Virginia General Assembly, which ends Feb. 23.

That law does not affect McAuliffe because he is not an office holder. He last ran for governor in 2009, finishing second in the Democratic primary.
