McKenna can raise money for gov.'s race - briefly
Attorney General Rob McKenna is temporarily able to raise money again for his gubernatorial bid.
The Republican's campaign is asking people to donate money between Friday and midnight Sunday. The narrow window is between when the state Legislature adjourned and when lawmakers reconvene for a special session to deal with budget issues they failed to resolve the last time around.
As a state official, McKenna is prohibited from fundraising while the Legislature is in session. His Democratic opponent, Congressman Jay Inslee, is not under those restrictions.
Inslee has raised a total of about $3.8 million for his campaign. McKenna has raised a total of $3.73 million, according to the latest figures from the state Public Disclosure Commission.
