Reilly breaks $4 million

In available cash, that is. Apparently it was last night's much-discussed birthday party that did the trick.

Here's the Reilly camp's press release. Note campaign manager Sean Sinclair's comment about cash on hand being the only number that means anything:

Reilly Surpasses $4 Million Milestone

Unmatched Cash-On-Hand Mark Reached After Highly Successful Birthday Fundraiser Brought In Over $300,000 From More Than 600 Individual Contributors

BOSTON - Attorney General and Democratic candidate for Governor Tom Reilly today announced that his campaign has surpassed the $4 million cash-on-hand mark in fundraising, reaching that goal after a highly successful fundraiser last night.

The fundraiser, held at the State Room in Boston, brought in over $300,000 from more than 600 individual contributors. The event will vault Reilly over the $4 million cash-on-hand mark in his March campaign finance filings.

Reilly campaign manager Sean Sinclair noted that cash-on-hand is the only true marker in fundraising, assuring that Reilly will have the resources to compete against the deep pockets of Kerry Healey and Christy Mihos in November.

"Kerry Healey and Christy Mihos are going to pump millions of their personal fortunes into their candidacies, and it is vital for the Democratic candidate to have the resources to compete," Sinclair said. "Tom Reilly  is clearly the best candidate - in terms of experience, vision, and support - to become our next Governor and get Massachusetts moving again."

No other candidate for Governor in Massachusetts history has reached the $4 million cash-on-hand level at this stage of the campaign.
