Former Rep. Tom Per­ri­ello (D) “raised more than $1.1 mil­lion in the month since he entered the race, his cam­paign an­nounced Monday. … Per­ri­ello cam­paign of­fi­cials de­clined to de­tail the sources of con­tri­bu­tions, bey­ond say­ing they in­clude 2,500 on­line dona­tions. Vir­gin­ia does not cap cam­paign giv­ing.”

Lt. Gov. Ral­ph Northam (D) “re­por­ted rais­ing $2.7 mil­lion last year, and had about $2.5 mil­lion avail­able in cam­paign ac­counts head­ing in­to 2017. His spokes­man Dav­id Turn­er says he raised an ad­di­tion­al $340,000 from 7,000 donors in the first week of Janu­ary, be­fore the state le­gis­lat­ive ses­sion began, sus­pend­ing his abil­ity to ac­cept con­tri­bu­tions. He can re­sume fun­drais­ing after the ses­sion ends on Feb. 26.”

“The state re­quires can­did­ates for gov­ernor to file their first cam­paign fin­ance re­ports on April 17.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)
