Warner to help Kaine raise money for Senate race

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner (D) will hold a fundraiser for his longtime friend, former governor Tim Kaine (D), as he raises money for his Senate race.

“It’s more important than ever to elect good men and women, and proven problem solvers, like Tim to the U.S. Senate. We simply must work to find common ground and get things done,” Warner wrote in his invitation to the fundraiser.

The event will take place May 17, at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria.

Kaine entered the race in April, after the first quarter reporting deadline. But he’s busy raising money for the June 30 deadline.

Allen raised more than $1.5 million in the first three months of this year and ended the quarter with nearly $1.25 million in the bank.

A new Washington Post poll shows Kaine and George Allen locked in a dead heat 18 months before Election Day, suggesting that the race may live up to its billing as one of the most competitive contests in the nation.
