That’s how much Bush’s visit to Bellevue raised on Monday, according to Postman. Part of that money will go to the state Republican party, and part of it will go to the reelection campaign of eastside Republican Congressman Dave Reichert.
On the Democratic side, Darcy Burner, who wants to challenge Reichert in the general election, raised more than $120,000 from an online counter-fundraiser that was tied to the Bush appearance.
I write more about all of this in the issue of The Stranger that comes out later this afternoon.
