Burner beats Reichert in '08 fundraising

Posted by David Postman

Even with help from First Lady Laura Bush, Congressman Dave Reichert, R-Auburn, trailed Democratic challenger Darcy Burner in first quarter fundraising for their 8th District race.

Reichert’s reports filed yesterday with the Federal Elections Commission show he raised $331,034 in the first three months of 2008. Burner raised more than $500,000.

Burner also has more money in the bank. She reported has $921,615 cash on hand, while Reichert has $698,035.

You can see Reichert's report here.

I originally posted an incorrect total for Reichert this morning. I had missed a transfer to Reichert's account of about $90,000, most of which came from the Laura Bush fundraiser.

Reichert's fundraising performance is troublesome, says Eric Earling. And it's cause for celebration at horsesass.org.
