Virginia’s Jim Moran Shows Brotherly Love, Campaign Finance Style

Posted April 16, 2009 at 11:40am

Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., showered a little brotherly love on Virginia gubernatorial candidate Brian Moran in late March, according to the former’s quarterly filing with the Federal Election Commission.

Congressman Moran gave former state Rep. Moran $50,000 on March 25, according to the report.

Brian Moran will need all the fundraising help he can get as he is matched up against former Democratic National Committee Chairman and chief Clinton fundraiser Terry McAuliffe in the party’s primary.

McAuliffe reported raising $4.2 million in the first quarter of 2009. Moran racked up $807,000, meaning his brother’s contribution accounted for more than 6 percent of his total.
