In Brief - April 20th, 2006

Here's your quick news digest for today:
  • The Associated Press has an article today about Darcy Burner's recent fundraising success. The Republicans offered nothing except spin when they were asked for comment. "'There’s plenty of low-hanging fruit in Seattle that any liberal activist can pick if they are running a congressional campaign,' Jonathan Collegio said. 'Reichert still has a 2-1 (cash) advantage, and I would seriously doubt that Burner would continue to raise money at that clip. There’s a long way to go.'" Translation: Republicans are worried sick about the prospect of losing the 8th Congressional District.
  • According to FOX News, the official cable channel of the RNC and Dick Cheney, Bush's approval ratings are at an all time low. Surprise, surprise.
  • More good news from Sound Transit recently: the Emerald Mole is making significant headway on the Central Link Beacon Hill Tunnel. Sound Transit's contractor says the project is going smoothly.
  • Russ Feingold's leadership PAC, the Progressive Patriots Fund, had an impressive first quarter.
