In the race for governor, money's on the mind as candidates reveal how much they have in the bank. Public filings due Monday show Democrat Terry McAuliffe outraised Republican Ken Cuccinelli $3.7 million to $2.2 million in the second quarter, maintaining a two-to-one cash advantage.

Analysts say if McAuliffe continues to raise more than his opponent, it could mean more ads - and potentially better turnout - for the Democrat.

"I think it's important to be able to get your message out, because you're trying to get those very hardcore Democrats and hardcore Republicans to show up on Election Day," said Geoff Skelley, political analyst at the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

Both candidates got a boost from their party's national governors associations. McAuliffe received $2 million from the Democratic Governors Association. Cuccinelli took in $1 million from the Republican Governors Association. He also received a $1 million donation in the first quarter from the RGA.
