A few months back I wrote a post about how when Bob McDonnell won a seat to the Virginia House of Delegates back back in 1991, Ralph Reed and the Christian Coalition cited that victory as proof of the effectiveness of their “guerrilla warfare” election strategy.
So that explains why Reed has been so active in Virginia now that McDonnell is seeking to become Virginia’s Governor … and also why Pat Robertson and his family have dumped tens of thousands of dollars into his campaign:
Republican gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell received a trio of last-minute donations totaling $40,000 from religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, his son and daughter-in-law.
Robertson contributed $25,000 on Oct. 20, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, a nonpartisan tracker of money in politics. His son, Tim, donated $5,000 Friday for in-kind services (listed as catering) and his wife, Lisa, donated $10,000 to McDonnell today.
