WashPost – National conservative group donates money to Virginia candidates

The Presidential Coalition, which touts its goal as educating the public on the value of having principled conservative Republican leadership at all levels of government, contributed $47,500 to candidates in Virginia for the last quarter.

To date, the group — an affiliate of Citizens United — has donated $62,250 in Virginia this election cycle. It expects to make further contributions.

“If Virginia continues to trend red, President Obama’s reelection campaign will have a tough road to climb on election night,” said David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United. “By focusing on Virginia, the Presidential Coalition will help shape the battlefield for 2012.”
