Kitzhaber Off To Big Fundraising Lead In Oregon Governor’s Race

Incumbent Democrat John Kitzhaber has staked out a sizeable lead over likely Republican challenger Dennis Richardson. Kitzhaber has already brought in roughly four times as much cash at Richardson. In addition to that, his contributors are signing much bigger checks. The two candidates have yet to face off in a debate and neither campaign has started airing ads. But you can expect to hear Richardson highlighting Kitzhaber’s role in the state’s struggling health insurance exchange, Cover Oregon. The governor says he’s taking steps to get the exchange back on track. In fact, some of his biggest checks have come from the healthcare industry. Sure, if I owned MODA, or Kaiser I’d be giving Dr. Kitz large sums of money too. Not to mention All The Money From Out-Of-State Unions!! The left says Republicans are the Big Money Party. Not in Kitzhabers Case!!
