Fast Money

Not sure the Republicans should even bother in Virginia.

RICHMOND, Oct. 15 -- Democrat Mark R. Warner raised more than $1 million for his bid for the U.S. Senate in less than three weeks, according to reports filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission.

Warner, a former governor, entered the race for the seat of retiring Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.) on Sept. 13.

Between his announcement and Sept. 30, the close of the latest federal campaign finance reporting period, Warner collected about $1.1 million, with no major organized fundraising events. He has about $1 million in the bank.

15 months from now there will be two Democratic senators from Virginia.
