Darcy, Dave and dollars.
Goldy has the good tidings...
Rep. Dave Reichert’s year-end fundraising report just showed up on the FEC website, and man is it pathetic: only $236,612 net contributions for the quarter and $462,828 cash-on-hand at the end of the year. Compare that to Darcy Burner’s $339,495 for the quarter and $607,144 cash-on-hand...I wouldn't be surprised if this news puts that House Appropriations Committee seat Reichert covets so shamelessly out of his reach. It's hard to believe the R's would consider him worth the investment. After all, Darcy's not beating him because her party is stacking the deck in her favor. The President of the United States hasn't been in town to give her a boost. She's without any of the inherent advantages of incumbency.
He's got all that, and it all adds up to behind.
The scary part is that he's probably a better candidate than he is a Congresscritter.
