Burner hits 200K
Posted by David Postman at 9:58 AM
Democrat Darcy Burner is doing a final check on her second quarter fundraising but looks to be doing better than she did in her first run against 8th District Congressman Dave Reichert, R-Auburn. Burner will file papers with the Federal Elections Committee later today showing she raised $199,768 in the second quarter that ended June 30. That's according to Sandeep Kaushik, who is consulting on the campaign. He says Burner will show $185,263 cash on hand.
Kaushik says that in Burner's '04 run, she didn't hit the $200,000 figure until much later.
"She's nine months ahead. She's got a big, running head start."
And the campaign obviously hopes it is enough to discourage other Democrats from getting in the primary.
