By conventional measures, Dave Reichert is the overdog in his race for a sixth term in Congress.

The Auburn Republican is the incumbent in Washington’s 8th Congressional District, and while he’s had close races against well-funded opponents, he’s never been beaten. On the money side, he’s outraised his latest opponent, Issaquah businessman Jason Ritchie, by a margin of 7 to 1. As of March 31, Reichert had raised $705,783 to Ritchie’s $103,540.
