Who are your neighbors donating to in the U.S. Senate race in Virginia?
A new Washington Post poll Tuesday shows the Virginia Senate race neck and neck, with Tim Kaine and George Allen split down the middle. Each has 46 percent, the same as a year ago, the newspaper noted.
Kaine is ahead in fundraising, collecting $7,434,457 to Allen's $6,137,826 as of March 31. Allen is in a primary race with three fellow Republicans, while Kaine has the Democratic field to himself.
Allen leads the race in donations from in-state donors, with 47.8 percent of his donations coming from Virginia. Kaine's in-state donations account for 31.3 percent, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
However donations of less than $200 total $421,434 for Kaine and $130,700 for Allen.
In fundraising, the two trade first-place in donations honors from ZIP code to ZIP code in Northern Virginia.
