Washington State: McGavick triggers millionaire's amendment

The Seattle Times reports: Republican Mike McGavick reached into his pockets Friday and dug out $2 million for his U.S. Senate campaign.

The personal loan comes a month before the September primary and amid a continuing gap in campaign fundraising with his chief opponent, Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell.

The most recent fundraising reports show that McGavick had raised about $4.5 million by June 30 and had $1 million in the bank. Cantwell had raised about $11 million and reported $6.4 million on hand. -- The Seattle Times: Politics: McGavick loaning his Senate campaign $2 million
