Perriello building big war chest for 2010

The calendar might say 2009, but for Congressman Tom Perriello (D-Ivy), the 2010 election season is already underway. According to his latest filing with the Federal Election Commission, Perriello has already raised $222,794 for his first re-election campaign in the first quarter of 2009 alone. Having won in a historically conservative district by the slimmest of margins in 2008, the freshman congressman will likely face a strong challenge from Republicans eager to take back his seat.

I heard Perriello say what he dislikes most about this job is having to raise money to run every 2 years. Does seem like a waste of time.
