Inslee names donors who rolled over federal cash

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee has identified hundreds of donors who helped roll over some $200,000 from his federal campaign account.

Inslee filed an amended campaign finance report Friday afternoon.

The Public Disclosure Commission had initially told Inslee's campaign that it could work with donors to roll over his unused federal contributions without disclosing the donors and without the money being subject to giving limits. The elections watchdog later revised its opinion to say that Inslee could transfer money from the federal account, but that the cash would be subject to disclosure and contribution restrictions.

Spokeswoman Jaime Smith said some donors had rolled over their federal money and given on top of that. She said the campaign would be disclosing some refunds next week, but she didn't have a final number available.
