Microsoft shadow looms over Reichert: Politico


Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.) can be forgiven if he’s feeling a case of déjà vu.

For the third consecutive election cycle, Reichert could face a well-funded, former Microsoft employee in his Seattle-area district.

Democrat Suzan DelBene, a former corporate vice president for mobile communications, has been raising money at a fast clip, hiring experienced campaign staff and traveling throughout the suburban district since February.

DelBene cuts a slightly different profile than Darcy Burner, a darling of the online liberal community who unsuccessfully challenged Reichert in 2006 and 2008 – for one thing, DelBene promotes her business background and moderate stands.
