Issaquah, WA – Based on current reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), Dino Rossi's Congressional campaign has raised more money than all nine of his current opponents combined, with $1.3 million raised from more than 3,300 individual contributors.

"I am so thankful for the grassroots enthusiasm and support that has flooded my campaign since September," Rossi said. "This is hard evidence that the people of the 8th Congressional District are ready to send someone with proven budget-balancing and problem-solving skills to fix the political mess in Washington, DC. I'm incredibly grateful to each of our supporters, and want to make sure each of you know: your voice is heard, and it counts!"
97.5% of the Rossi campaign 's contributions come from within Washington State, the highest percentage of in-state contributions in the field of candidates.
"I donated because Dino has a track record of working effectively to bring all sides together to solve problems" said Ramzy Boutros, the winner of the Rossi campaign's three thousandth donor contest. "Dino has the legislative experience and skills to represent the 8th District and help Washington DC stop the grandstanding, and get them solving problems again."    
Since January 1st, the Rossi campaign has smashed through the four thousandth donor mark and is rapidly closing in on five thousand individual donors.

The latest FEC reports were due from all campaigns yesterday, and are current through December 31, 2017.
