Ken Cuccinelli’s fundraising lags behind Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling’s

This post has been updated.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R) raised about $538,000 in the past six months for his 2013 gubernatorial campaign, far less than Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R), his chief rival for the GOP nomination, according to campaign finance reports filed Monday.

Cuccinelli reported raising $538,104 in the first half of 2012, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, a nonpartisan tracker of money in politics. Bolling raised $962,061 over that period.

But Cuccinelli was able to bolster his account in March by transferring $476,938 from his attorney general’s account to his gubernatorial account.

Bolling ended the period with $1,479,100 in cash on hand, while Cuccinelli had $627,337 on hand.
