Va. Gov. McAuliffe Still Paying off Campaign Debts

Posted:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Terry McAuliffe is continuing to pay off campaign debt from last year's expensive gubernatorial contest.

McAuliffe has transferred $250,000 from his political action committee to his gubernatorial campaign account since September. His campaign account also took in a $12,500 donation earlier this month from Tim Finchem, the Florida-based commissioner of the Professional Golfers' Association of America.

The campaign reported having $375,000 in unpaid debt in June.

Michael Halle, an adviser to the governor's political action committee, says it's normal for campaigns to pay off debts after an election. He noted that McAuliffe spent heavily during last year's race to help bolster turnout for all state Democratic candidates.

McAuliffe is one of the Democratic Party's premiere fundraisers and is the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
