News from the Democratic Farm Team in Virginia - Rising Star Werkheiser crushes Albo in fundraising


Greg Werkheiser, candidate for the House of Delegates from the 42nd District in southern Fairfax County, has raised significantly more money to date than his incumbent opponent, David Albo, and leads all challengers statewide in fundraising, according to reports filed with the State Board of Elections on January 18, 2005.

Werkheiser out-raised his opponent by almost 2 to 1: Werkheiser $81,615; Albo $55,119.

Werkheiser now has twice as much unencumbered cash on hand as his opponent: Werkheiser $50,017; Albo $23,767

Werkheiser's contributions come from 200 individuals; Albo had 8 individual contributors.

Werkheiser leads all challengers statewide in total contributions raised and funds on-hand.    

The 42nd House of Delegates District forms the southern tip of Fairfax County.  Nearly fifty-two percent of the district voted for John Kerry in 2004, and Governor Mark Warner won the district with similar margins in 2001.

"I am humbled by the support of so many citizens in the 42nd District who are voting with their pocketbooks for a change in leadership.  While we are very pleased with this outpouring of support, I am going to keep doing what I have been doing: listening to my neighbors and working to make our communities in Fairfax County a better
place to live, work and raise a family," stated Werkheiser.
