McAuliffe posts fundraising advantage over Cuccinelli through June

Virginia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe, outraised his Republican challenger Ken Cuccinelli in June, and McAuliffe's campaign has more than twice as much money in the bank.

McAuliffe, a former national Democratic Party chief who cultivated a reputation as a talented fundraiser, collected $1.9 million in June, according to a release from his campaign on Monday afternoon. McAuliffe reported having just over $6 million in cash on hand at the end of last month.

Cuccinelli, Virginia's conservative attorney general, raised $1.1 million last month. He had $2.7 million in the bank through the end of June.

McAuliffe's cash advantage over Cuccinelli is hardly determinative in deciding the outcome of Virginia's hard-fought governor's race this year. But the figures offer a glimpse into each candidate's resources heading into the fall, when voters are expected to tune in more fully to the campaign.
