1. I have no idea...their web site doesn't tell me much.

I've noticed a ton of Del Bene ads on TV and was wondering where her $$$ was coming from. I've never heard of her before now.

Darcy Burner is also running for that seat.

Do the attack ads you're getting promote another candidate, other than Del Bene?

2. Laura Ruderman supporters

It appears that "Progress for Washington" is a SuperPAC that is aligned with Democratic candidate Laura Ruderman. For more information, see the following article from the SeattlePI. http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattlepolitics/2012/07/11/mysterious-anti-delbene-smear-at-63985/


Thanks,
-Bill

3. Laura Ruderman's mom

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2018697037_1stdistrict16m.html
A political-action group formed to attack the business record of 1st Congressional District candidate Suzan DelBene was funded entirely by the mother of one of DelBene's opponents, Laura Ruderman, according to Federal Election Commission filings released Sunday.

The PAC, Progress for Washington, plans to press its attack in TV ads against DelBene, thanks to a $115,000 contribution from Ruderman's mother, Margaret Rothschild. Until Sunday, the PAC's donors were not known.

It is the only independent spending thus far in the hotly contested race for the House seat, but it has added a nasty edge as five Democrats vie to advance to November and likely face Republican John Koster.

In a statement, Rothschild, who lives on Vashon Island, said she paid for the ads because she was "very frustrated" that DelBene, a millionaire former Microsoft vice president, could self-fund her campaign while Ruderman could not.

5. Susan's money

Suzan's money comes from her and her husband. He is #3 at Microsoft, and she's a former exec. Suzan put $1 million of her own money into her campaign so far.

Here are the latest FEC reports-
DelBene: http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/cancomsrs/?_12+H0WA08046
Burner: http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/cancomsrs/?_12+H6WA08068
Ruderman: http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/cancomsrs/?_12+H8WA01051

And here's Ruderman's mom's PAC: http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/cancomsrs/?_12+C00523571
