Congressional candidate Kilmer off to a fast fundraising start

State Sen. Derek Kilmer says he raised $358,039 in a month for his congressional race to replace U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks in the 6th District. His campaign plans to announce his first-quarter fundraising Friday morning.

Dicks announced last month he will not seek re-election, and the race to replace him quickly narrowed down. Last week, Dicks announced he was endorsing Kilmer, the only Democrat left in the race.

Two Republicans, Jesse Young and Doug Cloud, are in the race. Neither has reported fundraising for the first quarter.

Kilmer is known as a strong fundraiser in his legislative campaigns. For comparison, 1st District candidate Suzan Delbene announced this week she raised about $341,000 in the first quarter of 2012.
