Charles `Chuck' Robb, chairman of the party's senatorial campaign committee, privately grumble that the Virginian's legal troubles are severely hampering fund-raising for the fall election. The committee currently has only $500,000 in the bank to help fund critical Senate races; Robb's bitter feud with Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder; Nevada's Richard Bryan will likely be Robb's successor if he steps down.
