The Horse Race - Baril catches McDonnell in dollars raised

Lessig & Scanlon of the Daily Press report here, among other things, that in the race for the Republican nomination for Attorney General of Virginia, to be decided in the year 2005, Steve Baril from Richmond has drawn abreast of Del. Robert McDonnell of Virginia Beach in terms of fundraising.

The article notes that Baril is "trying to tap into a segment of the party which is perhaps best described as Mark Warner Republicans - the so-called Main Street business leaders who fled the GOP in 2001 to help Warner win the governor's mansion."
