The Durant Money Trail

In the VA-27 Senate GOP Primary, Tara Durant has raised over a half million dollars in her battle against Matt Strickland. Durant’s major donors are PACs, businesses, and special interest groups. Strickland’s donors are primarily actual people.

A lot of late money is being thrown into the Durant campaign. On Thursday June 15th, Durant received an in-kind contribution of $3500 from the Governor’s PAC Spirit of Virginia. In addition, Durant received $5000 in cash from 3 individuals and $3000 from businesses.

The donations to the Durant campaign tell the story. Why would a PAC or business donate money unless they expect something in return? How could this not be “pay to play” or “quid pro quo” with Durant and her donors?
