McDonnell brought in $1.612 million in last six months, from 1,072 individual contributions, and raised more than $1 million since election day 2008.
Campaign Manager Phil Cox noted, "Bob's campaign for Governor is attracting donors from all across Virginia. It is another sign of the excitement that Bob is generating everywhere he goes. Virginians are recognizing that Bob McDonnell will be the type of Governor who is willing to reach out to Independents, Democrats and Republicans, to build consensus and get results. That is kind of leadership Virginians want and deserve."
