Kurita revives fundraising for Senate write-in bid

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Democratic state Sen. Rosalind Kurita has wasted little time reviving her fundraising efforts after deciding to mount a write-in campaign to win back her seat.

Kurita registered Monday to have her write-in votes counted in the November election after her 19-vote primary victory over Clarksville attorney Tim Barnes was declared invalid by the state Democratic Party's executive committee.

In an e-mail obtained by The Associated Press Tuesday Kurita tells supporters she had thought her fundraising efforts were complete for the year until, in her words: "They stole the election."

A joint convention of the Democratic executive committees in Montgomery, Cheatham and Houston counties is scheduled to meet Wednesday to declare the Democratic nominee in the race.

No Republican is running in the general election.
