We were hazarding a guess that Oregon Senator Gordon Smith‘s fundraising for this cycle would run to about $5 million, or a little more; his actual reporting of $6.1 million probably exceeds most expectations.
The Oregonian‘s Jeff Mapes quotes on his blog from a Smith press release (why aren’t they putting these things on their web site?): “The campaign has raised approximately $6.1 million during the current election cycle and has $4.035 million cash on hand.”
With a year of fundraising yet to go. Any guesses how high this number will go by then? $12 million? $16 million?Share on Facebook
