VA-05: Democrats surge ahead in fundraising in Virginia's most competitive districts

Good, in contrast, raised just $5,391 through WinRed this quarter. Some of his greatest support appears to have come from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), with a $73,200 contribution through the Cruz 20 for 20 Victory Fund. Cruz is also assisting Freitas with fundraising.

A self-described biblical conservative, Good challenged Riggleman in the nominating convention after the congressman officiated at the same-sex marriage of one of his aides.
During the general-election campaign, Good has positioned himself as a traditional law-and-order Republican, with strong support for President Trump’s agenda, holding numerous rallies with law enforcement groups. Trump won the district by 11 points in 2016.

Webb, a lawyer and doctor, is running on a platform focused on police and criminal justice reform. The son of a Drug Enforcement Administration officer, he has responded to attacks from Good and the NRCC by pointing to endorsements from several current and former sheriffs in central Virginia — including a former sheriff in Campbell County, where Good served as a board supervisor.

Webb’s fundraising report shows tens of thousands of dollars in donations from physicians associations, blue-collar unions and liberal outfits such as the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund and the Voter Protection Project, among others.
