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.”
