Delegate Tom Rust didn’t see us coming. According to the Loudon Times, “Del. Tom Rust (R-86th)… fell short of his challenger’s cash intake. Democrat Jennifer Boysko brought in $57,000 to Rust’s more than $32,000.”
It is because of grassroots support from people like you that Jennifer was able to report such a great number. More than 75% of our total came from contributions of $100 or less.
If Tom Rust didn’t think he had a race, he knows he has one now. And like a typical Richmond politician, Delegate Rust’s campaign turned to special interest money to fund his reelection. While Jennifer outraised Tom last quarter, we know he will be raising more from his friends with deep pockets.
