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.You can see Reichert's report here.

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.
