Virginia Freshmen Join Forces To Raise 2010 Money

The three Virginia Democrats who replaced Republicans after the 2008 election will be raising some campaign funds together as they prepare for their House re-election campaigns.

Virginia Freshmen Victory Fund was established Monday with the Federal Election Commission as a joint fundraising committee that will collect funds and then divvy them up among the campaign committees of Reps. Glenn Nye of the 2nd District, Tom Perriello of the 5th District and Gerald E. Connolly of the 11th District.

The victories of Nye, Perriello and Connolly enabled Democrats to increase their House majority in the 2008 election, but the Republicans are targeting all three Democrats in 2010.
