Former Rep. Tom Per­ri­ello (D) loaned his cam­paign $150,000 on Tues­day, ac­cord­ing to a dis­clos­ure filed Wed­nes­day.

His cam­paign also re­leased Hay­staqDNA polling (June 1-6; 455 Demo­crat­ic LVs) show­ing him and Lt. Gov. Ral­ph Northam stat­ist­ic­ally tied, 37-36%. “With 9 of 10 un­de­cideds break­ing to Per­ri­ello.” (Hot­line re­port­ing)

“Per­ri­ello’s cam­paign said it raised $255,000 on­line last week, its best week of the cam­paign so far, but he still has not hit the heights of the oth­er Demo­crats run­ning in high-pro­file fed­er­al races.” (Politico)

ON A TV NEAR YOU. Northam re­leased a new TV ad Wed­nes­day that high­lights his en­dorse­ments from the con­gres­sion­al del­eg­a­tion and Gov. Terry McAul­iffe (D). (re­lease)

Per­ri­ello also re­leased a 30-second spot in which he says: “Pres­id­ent Trump’s ab­use of power is real. But so is the power of cit­izens—from the Wo­men’s March, to Dulles air­port, to town halls across Vir­gin­ia. … I’m run­ning for gov­ernor be­cause we’re bet­ter than this.” (re­lease) A spokes­man said the spot “will” run on TV. (Hot­line re­port­ing)

VIR­GIN­IA WAY. “Northam said Wed­nes­day night that it was ask­ing a new polit­ic­al ac­tion com­mit­tee to drop plans for an ad cam­paign to dam­age … Per­ri­ello. A group called Vir­gini­ans for a Bet­ter Fu­ture has ‘dis­closed its in­ten­tions to spend money on di­git­al ad­vert­ising and polit­ic­al dir­ect mail in sup­port of my cam­paign for gov­ernor and in op­pos­i­tion to my op­pon­ent’s.’” (Wash­ing­ton Post)

I AP­PROVE THIS MES­SAGE. Com­mon De­fense, “a grass­roots or­gan­iz­a­tion of pro­gress­ive vet­er­ans and mil­it­ary fam­ily mem­bers,” en­dorsed Per­ri­ello on Wed­nes­day. (re­lease)

Na­tion­al Right to Life on Wed­nes­day en­dorsed former RNC Chair Ed Gillespie (R). (re­lease)

Former Treas­urer Bay Buchanan en­dorsed Prince Wil­li­am County Su­per­visors Chair Corey Stew­art (R). (re­lease)
