Neither of the two front-runners in Virginia's gubernatorial are raising much money in the state they hope to govern.

New numbers show Virginia's major party candidates for governor are getting most of their support from outside the state.

Campaign finance data analyzed by the nonprofit and independent watchdog, the Virginia Public Access Project, shows Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli received more outside political money than any governor's race on record in Virginia.

In fact, Cucccinelli only received a little more than 30 percent of his fundraising through August from Virginians. McAuliffe raised nearly 27 percent inside the state.

The opposite was true for Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis, who gained most of his support from Virginians. He raised 68 percent of his scant $66,000 inside the state. He's the only Virginia-born candidate.
