With a lot of people noting Sarah Palin's seriously impressive cash haul in the last quarter, Joel Connelly dug through the disclosure documents and found out who's receiving what from SarahPAC in Washington State.
No surprises on the recipients, but the amounts—relative to what Palin is investing in other states—are notable:
Sarah Palin's political action committee gave a modest $87,500 to candidates in the second quarter of 2010, but $15,000 of it went to candidates in Washington State—a Senate challenger, a House incumbent and a House challenger.
The latest Federal Election Commission filing by SarahPAC shows a $5,000 donation to Clint Didier, the ex-NFLer and Tea Party-backed candidate running as a Republican against Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash...
Palin has given $5,000 to Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers, R-Wash., a member of the House Republican leadership.
She has also donated $5,000 to Snohomish County Councilman John Koster, who is challenging Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Wash. Koster is also a Tea Party favorite, and was endorsed by Palin last month.
The Republicans in Washington have received more from Palin than big-name California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, who received $2,500, or Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle, who got $2,500.
