Republican John Koster, a candidate for Congress in the 1st District, received a $5,000 contribution from SarahPAC, the political organization headed by Sarah Palin. Koster is in a tight race with Democrat Suzan DelBene to represent the 1st District, a newly drawn swing district that runs from Redmond to the Canadian border.

Palin endorsed Koster in 2010, when he ran against Democrat Rick Larsen.

Koster’s far-right tea party ties have been a major talking point for the DelBene campaign, which has branded Koster “too extreme” for the 1st District. Koster’s campaign says DelBene is too liberal...

Sarah has been keeping a low profile this year. She has been busy with family things, not so much with politics apparently.

Palin has been busy this year endorsing and supporting candidates, she helped move our primary right, like with Cruz in Texas, and many others.

“Sarah PAC, Palin’s leadership political action committee, spent more than $774,000 during the year’s third quarter after taking in more than $843,500 — the bulk of it from donors who contributed $200 or less, federal records filed Sunday show.

Palin’s PAC spent its cash on a variety of political initiatives, ranging from postage (at least $270,000) and direct mail and contact list rentals ($242,087) to tens of thousands of dollars in various travel expenses, such as agent services, airfare, vehicle rentals and operating and repairing a bus, records indicate. The PAC also incurred $18,000 in speechwriting fees.

The campaigns of 10 political candidates received direct donations from Sarah PAC in the four-figure range. They include Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.); Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a U.S. Senate candidate; Republican Senate candidate Ted Cruz of Texas; and Republican House candidates Mia Love of Utah and Ted Yoho of Florida.”
