Terence Richard "Terry" McAuliffe (born February 9, 1957) is a longtime fundraiser and political operative for the Democratic Party. He served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee (February 2001-February 2005). He also served as chairman of the 2008 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. He is currently a Democratic candidate for the 2009 gubernatorial election in Virginia.

McAuliffe grew up in Syracuse, New York and graduated from Bishop Ludden Junior/Senior High School in 1975. His father was treasurer of the local Democratic organization. He started his first business, McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance, at the age of 14. In 1979, he received a bachelors degree from The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. After graduation, McAuliffe took a job in the 1980 presidential reelection campaign of Jimmy Carter, and at the age of 22 became the national finance director. It was during this campaign that McAuliffe wrestled an eight-foot, 260-pound alligator for a $15,000 contribution. After the campaign, McAuliffe enrolled in law school at Georgetown University. He received a Juris Doctor degree in 1984. McAuliffe then served as Chairman of the Federal City National Bank by the age of 30.

He has five children with wife Dorothy: Dori, Jack, Mary, Sally, and Peter.
