Burner doubles Reichert's '08 fundraising

Posted by David Postman

Please see corrected post here.

In the first quarter of this year Democratic Congressional challenger Darcy Burner raised more than twice as much as incumbent Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Auburn.

Reichert’s reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission show he raised $239,896 in the first three months of 2008. Burner raised more than $500,000.

Burner also has more money in the bank. She reported $921,615 cash on hand, while Reichert has $698,035. Overall the money race is closer. Reichert has raised $1.1 million so far this cycle and Burner has raised $1.3 million.

Gee, two Burner press releases in a row! Maybe we can get Goldy's take on the whole 8th District race to add some balance. It's OK because the money will be used to buy Burner some qualifications...someday.
