The Republican National Committee will spend at least $7 million to send Bob McDonnell to the Virginia governor’s mansion. That includes $2 million the group has already given McDonnell.
RNC spokeswoman Katie Wright confirmed the financial commitment Tuesday, saying the group “is fully committed to ensuring that the campaign has the resources necessary” to win in November.
Wright said the RNC transferred $400,000 to McDonnell’s campaign Tuesday.
The Democratic National Committee previously announced it would spend upwards of $5 million to help Democrat Creigh Deeds.
