Ruderman's Mom Strikes Again

Posted by on Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 5:15 PM

Progress for Washington, the Super PAC that as far as we know is solely funded by Laura Ruderman's mother, reported another $21,328 printing a postage expenditure today, this time for a mailer "supporting" Ruderman. (That said, their previous mailer "supporting Ruderman" included attacks on Darcy Burner and Suzan DelBene.) This brings the PAC's total reported expenditures to $239,262.

In other 1st Congressional District news, DelBene received endorsements today from Representative Adam Smith and the Everett Herald, while Burner announced that she has received her 9,000th campaign contribution. Burner is averaging only about $40 per contribution, DelBene likely many times that, but it's impossible to calculate from the FEC reports.

Also in the 1st CD there have been numerous reports of an alleged "push poll" attacking DelBene. Some people say it includes positive messaging about Ruderman; others say it has positive messaging about Burner. Maybe they are two different polls? And alleged "push polls"—disguising messaging as a poll—usually aren't. Rather they are usually efforts to test potential messages for effectiveness. But nothing would surprise me in this race.

Supporting Ruderman is one of my favorite Saul Bellow novels.

I voted for Steve Hobbs, in spite of the fact that the Seattle Times endorsed him. He's my state senator and always makes time to listen to us. I think he's the only one who can beat anti-gay John Koster, the sole Republican, who will probably get enough votes to be on the ballot in Nov.
