"A Bottomless Pit"

That's how Larry Sabato refers to the ridiculous amounts of money that are flowing into this year's Attorney General's race. Republican Bob McDonnell has raised nearly $3.5 million for this race, while his opponent has raised over $1.6 million.

As Not Ben Tribbett mentions in this RTD article, those amounts that, even a few years ago, would have been substantial for a Gubernatorial candidate, are now commonlace for downticket candidates.

Expect to be inundated by TV ads and other communications from both candidates as we enter the last few weeks of the race and both sides try to motivate their voters to the polls while also trying to reach those remaining undecideds.
