Three-peat: Burner Outraises Reichert Again

Posted by on September 8 at 9:43 AM

For the third straight fund-raising period, Democrat Darcy Burner has outraised Republican incumbent
Dave Reichert in the eastside’s 8th Congressional District.

According to her campaign, Burner has raised $311,980 since the last reporting period in June, while Reichert raised only $177,000 $198,043. No wonder the Reichert campaign is welcoming Karl Rove to town for a fund-raiser next week.

In the over-all cash on hand totals, Reichert still leads. He has $1.13 million to Burner’s $727,607. But Burner clearly has the fund-raising momentum, which is probably one reason the New York Times currently rates the 8th District House race as one of 16 “toss-ups.”

Actually the FEC reports that Reichert raised $198,043 but it is still over $113,000 less than what Burner brought in.

You should also be reporting on the fact that Peter Goldmark in WA-05 raised $305,007, almost as much as Burner, and almost twice as much as his opponent McMorris. That's another race that should be watched very closely now.

It would be a sweet bracket to 1994 to take back the seat that Nethercutt took from Tom Foley.

Maybe he'll bring Bush into town again and shut down I-90 once more?
