Former Va. governor appears for pre-trial motion

McDonnell's defense fund has raised $93,000

Former governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell and his wife are set to go to trial later this month on corruption charges.

Tuesday, the two were in federal court during a pre-trial motion. They have pleaded not guilty to the corruption charges against them.

The legal defense fund for the former governor is reporting it has raised $93,000 during the second quarter of this year. The fund's quarterly report to the IRS was made public Tuesday.

The fund has raised more than $250,000 since it was created by McDonnell supporters last year.
