Once again, the Democratic Party candidate for governor excels in raising out-of-state money, according to data published by the Virginia Public Access Project. Democrat Terry McAuliffe has raised 48% of his $15.6 million in total donations from out-of-state contributors, compared to 26% of Glenn Youngkin’s $11.4 million haul.
The big outside money for McAuliffe comes mainly from New York — 363 donors chipping in $1.4 million.
Youngkin’s biggest out-of-state contributors come from Texas — 99 donors and $790,000.
