Pro-Cuccinelli PAC Celebrates $500k Donation

A pro-Cuccinelli PAC is celebrating a $500,000 donation from New York hedge fund executive Robert L. Mercer.6757871357_f3f060a40c_z

The recently formed PAC, the Virginia Principles Fund, lists no other donors besides Mercer. The Chesapeake-based group reports the donation is meant to elect Ken Cuccinelli to the governor’s office.

This large donation shows the Virginia gubernatorial race will be a magnet for outside cash, and could allow Cuccinelli to contend with Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe’s fundraising abilities.
