Jeff Schapiro with the Richmond Times Dispatch has a column in today's paper in which he said.
The Republican nominee for governor may have a new objective, though he doesn’t seem to be telling many people: Scuttling Virginia’s 16-year-old ban on campaign fundraising during the annual legislative session.I hope that's not the case.
Back in 2012, a state senator from Virginia Beach was interested in hosting a Romney fundraiser during our session. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli issued an Attorney General's Opinion holding that the statutory prohibition on General Assembly and Statewide Officeholders fundraising during session did not apply to solicitations on behalf of presidential candidates. In 2010, he had issued a previous opinion giving a sitting state senator the green light to raise money to run for Congress. He ended up winning.
