FitzSimmonds and Miller Out Fundraise Opponents

By Greg L | 15 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate, 50th HOD District | 6 Comments

Manassas area Republicans Bob FitzSimmonds and Jackson Miller both bested their pro-illegal immigrant Democratic opponents in September fundraising.  FitzSimmonds beat Colgan $161,346 to $134,494 while Miller beat Rishell $60,648 to $38,028.  This is quite a turn from earlier reporting periods, where cash from Richmond was giving local Democrats the edge in campaign finance.  Although the boost for Miller and Fitzsimmonds is probably later than they’d like, it might signal that the wheels might be coming off some of these campaigns for Democrats in the wake of some recent dumb campaign mailers that have proven embarrassing.
Colgan was unable to keep up with the challenger FitzSimmonds, despite getting money from his good friends at the Virginia Senate Democratic Caucus ($50,000), Tim Kaine ($30,000), and Paul Ebert ($5,000).  The pro-illegal alien crowd didn’t forget about ol’ Jeanette though as Mark Warner gave her $1,000.  I’m sure Jeanette appreciate Mark remembering to send the check, especially since she couldn’t even remember to vote for him in 2001.

    Since Paul Ebert has given Colgan money, can we now expect him to trump up some bogus charges against FitzSimmonds before Election Day and then refer it to a special prosecutor so there is no appearance of impropriety after blabbing about it to the newspaper?

    WE WANT HAM!!!

    I hope the Dems get more money to Colgan and Rishell. They need the money so I can get sent ridiculous mail criticizing Jackson about votes that were never before him or pictures of a six year old Chuck Colgan surrounded by planes that weren’t developed for twenty more years.

    Miller does seem to have the upper hand on “cash on hand”.
