Where the money comes from

The Washington Public Disclosure Commission has tallied up the contributions in the governor's race, by candidate and county, and the results aren't too surprising.

Like the famous bank robber Willie Sutton's admonition, both Dino Rossi and Chris Gregoire go where the money is, that is King County, for the largest chunk of their contributions.

But Gregoire gets nearly two-thirds of her identifiable money from King County, compared to 40 percent for Rossi. And he is out-raising her in most other counties.
