Our Washington, the PAC formed to help Democrat Jay Inslee win the governor’s race, had already reserved more than $3.2 million worth of ads. The total grew to $4.96 million through the end of August, according to disclosures filed today.
The committee is funded by labor unions, trial lawyers and the Democratic Governors Association. The Democratic governors’ group gave another $200,000 to the committee last week to bring its contributions to $2.25 million.
Expect a barrage of ads against Republican Rob McKenna from the PAC as a counterpoint to the anti-Inslee ads from the Republican Governors Association.
