Given that Christine Gregoire and Dino Rossi ran against one another for governor four years ago, you'd think that the people of Washington state would already know everything about the two candidates. So, they probably can dispense with a pricey campaign this time around.
As the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports, yeah right:
OLYMPIA -- In her bid for re-election, Gov. Chris Gregoire has raised $4.6 million -- more than twice that of Republican challenger Dino Rossi.
Rossi has raised $2.2 million, according to campaign finance reports filed this week. But while Rossi trails in dollars taken in, he is quick to point out that he is spending less money, too.
Gregoire has spent $1.6 million, more than a third of what she has amassed. Rossi has spent $636,000.
And both sides already are predicting record spending for their rematch of 2004. The two candidates each spent more than $6 million in that election, which resulted in two recounts, a court challenge and a 133-vote margin of victory for Gregoire.
