Because of that, Kaine has been able to outspend Allen in the final month of the campaign, though outside groups have helped Allen level the playing field.
"The campaign took out a line of credit to have maximum flexibility to access funds we continue to raise online and through credit card donations," Allen spokeswoman Katie Wright told The Hill. "This race will come down to the wire, the momentum is on our side and we feel good about our position as head into the final weekend."
Allen and Kaine have been in a tight race for months, though Kaine has led nearly every recent public poll of the race.
