Democratic gubernatorial nominee Creigh Deeds raised $3.4 million during the latest fundraising period, in an effort to replentish campaign coffers depleted by a tough primary.
“The key to winning this campaign will be to show who has the best plan to keep Virginia moving forward,” Deeds said in a release. “This month has shown that we are well on our way to having the financial resources to do that.”
The fundraising period ran May 28-June 30. The Democrat’s campaign has raised a grand total of $6.2 million and finished the period with $2.7 million in the bank.
Deeds made sure to point out that 68 percent of his donors this go-round contributed less than $100. About two-thirds of Deeds’ donations this year have come from inside the Commonwealth.
I’ll update frequently this week as more reports are released.
