Mechanicsville, VA- Rusty McGuire, the only prosecutor and Iraq War veteran in the Republican primary for the 55th House of Delegates seat, announced today that his campaign had raised more money and had three times as many donors as both of his opponents.

“We made a decision early on to run a grassroots, issues based campaign,” said Rusty McGuire. “We are truly excited by the amount of support we have received from across Hanover.”

McGuire out-raised both of his opponents for the first quarter of 2009 with $27,571 from 154 donors. In contrast to McGuire, his opponents had 47 and 43 donors apiece. McGuire’s closest opponent in fundraising also reported that 48% of his campaign war chest is a loan from himself.
