Reichert bests Burner, a bit, in latest money totals

Posted by David Postman at 2:48 PM

Congressman Dave Reichert, R-Auburn, outpaced Democratic challenger Darcy Burner in third-quarter fundraising. Thanks in part to help from a visit by President Bush, Reichert raised $340,800 in the past three months, according to his chief of staff, Mike Shields. That brings up his 2007 total to $830,440. Reichert has $339,400 left in the bank.

Shields said the Reichert camp is happy with the fundraising totals. He did say it has been more difficult to raise money in D.C. this cycle now that Reichert is in the minority.

I posted yesterday on Burner's numbers. Also helped by Bush's visit, Burner raised $304,901 in the third quarter. She has raised $518,630 so far this year and has $370,228 in the bank.
