Brian Moran files campaign finance report


Virginians for Brian Moran filed its first campaign finance report in accordance with Tuesdays filing deadline with the Virginia State Board of Elections. The report shows $1.4 million in contributions, as was announced on Monday, July 7.

We are very proud of Delegate Morans fundraising success this year, spokesman Jesse Ferguson said. This report shows a significant base of support with the potential to meet the long-term needs of financing a gubernatorial campaign.

The committee reported $924,292 on hand as of June 30, more than the $800,000 estimate released in last weeks announcement. The accounting staff provided a conservative estimate for the early release, which has been revised due to less expense at the end of the period than anticipated.

Morans fundraising exceeds the amount raised by then-Lieutenant Governor Tim Kaine and then-Attorney General Jerry Kilgore during the first half of 2004, the most recent comparable fundraising period.  Morans $1.38 million sets Virginias record for candidates without a previous statewide campaign.
