 Democrat Patrick McGowan said this afternooon that he has turned in the checks he needs to qualify for Clean Election funding.

McGowan joins fellow Democrat Libby Mitchell and Republican Peter Mills in their quest to get state public financing. Of the party candidates who said they planned to use the system, only Democrat John Richardson has yet to file. The deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday.

 For his part, McGowan said he reached the threshold in just 84 days.

 "We were faced with the daunting task of gathering more than 3,250 $5 contributions in less than three months time," McGowan said in a statement. "The quick turnaround is indicative of the solid levels of support that our campaign is seeing is every part of this state."
