Remember how Mike Huckabee used Virginia briefly to set up a PAC able to rake in unlimited sums for his political use, including some questionable spending on travel that amounted to presidential exploratory work. Washington Post reports that Virginia is about to effectively shut down that end-around campaign finance limits. At least half the money raised by such PACs will have to be spent on Virginia candidates. I don't think Huckabee ever spent a dime of his money on Virginians. But they may get a windfall. He still has some surplus money in the account.
