Contribution of the Day

By Erica C. Barnett July 21, 2009

King County Executive candidate Susan Hutchison just reported $3,200 in contributions from Jacklyn and Miguel Bezos, the mother and stepfather of Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos.

Hutchison, a Republican running for the officially nonpartisan position, has raised about $253,000. The elder Bezoses haven't reported any other significant campaign contributions since 1998; Jeff Bezos has reported major contributions to both Democrats (US Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, both D-WA) and Republicans (former US Sen. Slade Gorton, R-WA and former US Sen. Spencer Abraham, R-MI).

Hutchison's campaign has not responded to a request for a comment about scoring $3,200 from the parents of one of Seattle's most famous CEOs.
