Liias seeks donors to battle opponent's 'mob'

Talk to Rep. Marko Liias, D-Edmonds, and he doesn't give the impression he's overly worried about winning re-election this fall.

Read a fund raising e-mail he sent to supporters today and it sounds like he's very much concerned by his opponent, Republican Elizabeth Scott.

Here's an excerpt:

"For the past three months, I have been hard at work fighting for jobs, a balanced budget, and our community's priorities. Priorities like public transit, affordable health care and a world-class education system."

Now I need your help! My opponent is serious and we need to fight hard to stay ahead.

"As I shared last week, I face a Tea Party Republican this fall, and she is already mobilizing her mob to take this battle to the streets. While I was frozen from raising money during session, she raised over $10,000!

Just this week, she delivered speeches at several Tea Party rallies in the area, and I can assure you: she is committed to dismantling the public services our community depends on! The national Tea Party movement has even suggested dismantling core services like Social Security."

Liias had raised a tad over $42,000 and spent about $39,400 prior to the start of the 2010 legislative session, according to the latest campaign information posted online by the Public Disclosure Commission.

Scott, who entered the race last May, had collected $22,315 and spent $18,642, according to the site.
