Nearly a hundred million dollars has gone into this year's elections in Washington state so far.
The race for governor has been the most expensive. But big money is pouring into obscure races too.
A candidate for the post of Lieutenant Governor has raised a record sum for that position.
Nearly half his cash has come from outside Washington state.
The race for Lieutenant Governor is usually kind of a snooze. The incumbent, Brad Owen, has had a lock on the obscure job for the past 20 years.
But Owen announced his retirement this year.
