How much did Bush raise for Reichert?

Posted by David Postman

Congressman Dave Reichert's campaign got less than $200,000 from an August fundraiser headlined by President George Bush. The Bellevue event raised about $185,000 for the Auburn Republican's re-election campaign, according to Reichert's chief of staff, Mike Shields. The campaign had thought it had gotten more from the event, but $47,000 had to be refunded to donors who had given over the legal limit.

Proceeds from the Bush fundraiser were shared with the state Republican Party, which got about $130,000. Overall the president raised far less than the $800,000 he brought in for Reichert and the party in 2006, and less than the $500,000 Shields had hoped for this year.

You can see that Daniel Kirkdorffer continues to have questions about Reichert's fundraising and how much the campaign really got from the Bush event.
