Tim Kaine Spent $3.1 Million On Inauguration – McDonnell Only $1.5 Million

Bob McDonnell is already twice the Governor Tim Kaine was.

Several reports around the internet seem a bit critical of Governor-elect Bob McDonnell for his inaugural fund raising. Most fail to mention that Bob is planning a rather subdued celebration in keeping with the times compared to the last two Virginia Governor’s inaugurations. Democrat Tim Kaine raised a whopping $3.1 million for his inauguration after Democrat Mark Warner raised $2.5 million.

The 2010 inauguration goal is $1.5 million for Republican Bob McDonnell.

And at least one event is requesting that you bring canned goods for the food bank.

It is so nice to finally have sanity restored to Virginia. While $1.5 million is hardly chump change for most, it is far more reasonable than the previous administrations.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
