NRA donated more to races in Washington than in any other state
The Seattle Times reports:
When it comes to local politics, the National Rifle Association (NRA) appears to be keeping a close eye on Washington state.
The prominent gun-rights group contributed more to local candidates in Washington than anywhere else in the country last year — $68,300, according to a report released by the nonpartisan National Institute on Money in State Politics on Friday.
The money went mostly in $900 increments to 45 candidates for the Legislature — 39 Republicans and six Democrats — as well as one unsuccessful state Supreme Court hopeful: Richard Sanders.
