Contribution(s) of the Day: Hutchison v. Constantine

By Erica C. Barnett September 8, 2009

According to the latest campaign finance reports, King County Council chair Dow Constantine has continued to outraise his opponent in the King County Executive race, former KIRO anchor Susan Hutchison, by a margin of about two to one during the month of August.

Since the week of the August 18 primary, Constantine has raised more than $85,000 to Hutchison's $26,000. Although both candidates' fundraising accelerated in the last week of August, Hutchison's is still falling considerably short of her pre-primary average of about $19,000 to $20,000 per week.

Hutchison was slightly ahead of Constantine in a KING 5/ SurveyUSA poll last week. The next campaign finance reports, which will reflect spending through the end of August, are due this Thursday, September 2.
