The final fundraising report of the campaign was just released, and as you might imagine, unlike Thompson's 2,400+ small-dollar donors, Dance's money came from just 156 contributors, many of them big-dollar gifts directly from corporations. The average Thompson contribution was around $15, the average Dance contribution was about $528. This is a genuine people-powered effort.
Dance has more money and the power of incumbency, as well as the biggest corporate interest in the district. Thompson has Democrats who want a Democrat representing this Democratic district. And us.
This is the last chance to contribute to this effort, as any final cash will be spent over these last few days. Contribute $3 to Evandra Thompson, and let's rid our party of one more ALEC-loving Lieberdem, one that has made common cause with wacked-out Virginia Republicans far too many times.
As of this post, the thermometer is at $42,483. Can we get it to $53,000?
