Federal money UPDATED

So I was looking to write a piece on fundraising for Virginia ’06 federal races, and I noticed that the last report was filed Sept-05. I assume the next report is due on the 1st if January. Does anyone know the law? Nothing much interesting to report from the Sept-05 report: In the 2nd, Farlow (D) and Ashe (D) haven’t raised much. In the 8th, no Democrats have filed reports recently. Looks like Jonathan Mark won’t get his wish. And in the 11th, Andy Hurst and Ken Longmeyer have raised meager sums as of Sept-05. I ran into Hurst at an event a while back and he had hired a fundraiser. So we’ll see how that’s going when the January report comes out. I also know that Hurst has some loyal followers. Update: According to NLS, It looks like Thelma Drake will be challenged by Virginia Beach Commissioner of Revenue Phil Kellam. He currently rates the primary “Likely Kellam” and the general election “Slight-lean Republican”. We’ll be watching this one…
