Inslee's May fundraising numbers

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee is reporting that he raised nearly $574,000 in cash contributions for the month of May, half of what his Republican opponent, Attorney General Rob McKenna, raised during that same timeframe.

In filings Monday with the state Public Disclosure Commission, Inslee reported that he raised $573,763, plus more than $43,000 in in-kind contributions like catering and yard signs.

Inslee, a former congressman, has $3.4 million cash on hand entering the month of June.

On Friday, McKenna reported that he raised nearly $1.2 million in cash, plus $23,000 in in-kind contributions, and that he had $3.2 million cash on hand. Inslee and McKenna are vying to replace current Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire, who is not running for a third term.
