No one is running away with the campaign contributions in Oregon’s race for governor. Beyond that, how you assess it depends on how you count the dollars. By number of contributions? In a fund also listed as in support of ballot issues? Or?
Here’s how it stacks up as of the most recent reports at Orestar:
John Kitzhaber (D) – raised $389,670, spent $93,571
Chris Dudley (R) – raised $391,467, spent $75,609 (note that Dudley’s committee, unlike the others, also has been specifically marked as opposing Referenda 66 and 67)
Allen Alley (R) – raised $248,505, spent $199,808
Bill Bradbury (D) – raised $178,803, spent $157,284
Jerry Wilson (Progressive) – raised $4,500, spent $1,750
