Brian Bogen, nonpartisan candidate for governor, surpasses $100k fundraising, illustrates growing support for pragmatic leadership in Washington state

Bogen is touring the state with his next stops in Seattle on June 27 and Tri-Cities on July 9 to share his message of pragmatism and optimism with community leaders

CLE ELUM, Wash. – Nonpartisan candidate for governor Brian Bogen has raised more than $100,000 since he announced his bid for Washington state’s top executive. A successful businessman, Bogen is also known for his environmental and volunteer work.

“I’ve been traveling around the state and what I’ve heard, and my fundraising speaks to it, is that people are looking for a sensible centrist, someone that can bring people together not divide them along political lines and ideology,” Bogen said. “The political system is broken. But we can fix it and put the people of Washington state, not the political parties, in control of policies that align with our values of an inclusive economy, a clean environment and a great education for every student.”

Bogen outraised every candidate, except Dave Reichert and Bob Ferguson, in May, making his campaign competitive in the race for cash to spend on the primary election.

“As was said in a recent article in The Washington Observer, I may be a ‘long shot’ from the party loyalists, but the public is telling a very different story,”Bogen said. “I’m a serious candidate with serious donors who have a lot at stake and a bold vision for the direction of our state when the next administration is sworn in. As a businessman who has run multi-billion-dollar operations and balanced budgets with the goals and values of each project, I am ready to lead this state forward from the middle, something I think voters are hungry for now more than ever. I’m optimistic that Washingtonians will unite around my goal of pragmatic governance so everyone, not just those on the party fringes, are heard.”

As part of his statewide meetings, Bogen will be in the following locations:

  • Seattle: June 27
  • Tri-Cities: July 9
  • Bow/Edison: July 11
  • Pullman: July 15
