Jay Inslee’s fundraising lead grows as he sails past the $4 million mark
Jay Inslee’s latest fundraising reports show the Democratic candidate for governor is widening his lead over his opponent. Inslee, who led last month in fundraising as well, raised $460,729 in February, bringing his total raised to $4.25 million with $2.44 million cash-on-hand. Republican opponent Rob McKenna reported $2.03 million cash-on-hand with $3.74 million total raised.
“We’re proud to have the support of the nearly 20,000 people who believe in Jay’s vision for Washington, and with Jay coming home to focus full time on his race we’re excited about the months ahead,” said Joby Shimomura, Inslee’s campaign manager. “Our numbers are strong, our team is growing and we’re talking to more voters than ever."
