Retiring Sen. Jim Webb is urging supporters to donate to former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine.
Retiring Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) sent a fundraising email to supporters urging them to donate to former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine (D), who is running to succeed him in the Senate.
Kaine could face former Sen. George Allen (R), who turned in an impressive fundraising performance in the first three months of the year.
ďTimís most likely opponent raised $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2011 ó before Tim was even in the race,Ē Webb wrote. ďTim has some catching up to do, and I hope you will help. An early contribution to Timís campaign will make a big difference in November 2012.Ē
Kaine announced his bid April 5, just after the first fundraising quarter ended.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
