McKenna raised big bucks in May

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. -Republican candidate for governor Rob McKenna raised $1.2 million in May.         

McKenna's campaign says the attorney general had $3.2 million cash on hand entering the month of June. Because laws restrict elected officials from fundraising during legislation sessions, McKenna had been unable to raise money during the first few months of the year. 

Democratic candidate Jay Inslee has not reported May fundraising numbers yet.
