Financially, Webb falls way behind Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in fundraising. FEC filings show he raised $679,000 last quarter. Clinton and Sanders raised $29.4 and $26.2 million respectively.
In last week's "Saturday Night Live" skit, actor Alec Baldwin, who impersonated Webb, highlighted the way his policy differences deviated from those in the Democratic party, sputtering when the moderator (Jon Rudnitsky impersonating Anderson Cooper) asked him about his one-time "A" rating from the NRA.
Webb had previously said at the debate last week, "we have to respect the tradition in this country of people who want to defend themselves and their family from violence."
