Visualization: The Gubernatorial Slide


Barred from standing for re-election, the ability of Virginia Governors to raise political contributions fades over the course of their four year term.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe does not appear to be immune from this trend. In the first three months of 2017, his PAC brought in less than $31,000, a small fraction of what he raised during his first three months in office in 2014. 

VPAP has released a new visualization illustrating this decline in fundraising for each of the last five governors.
