The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Burner needs to catch up

I came across a piece on fundraising for the 8th Congressional district race on Ridenbaugh just now, and it's pretty clear that Democratic challenger Darcy Burner needs to pick up the fundraising. Having $100,000 on hand long before fall is not a terribly strong position for what is purported to be among the DCCC's biggest targets, especially when the incumbent, GOP Rep. Dave Reichert, has nearly $600,000 on hand.

At this point, i'm behind Reichert, being that he's the only member of the state's GOP delegation that is actually reasonably moderate, but if Burner and the liberal so-called blogosphere really intends to knock off Reichert this fall, open up your wallets already.
