SEIU Spends $1 Million Praising Eight House Dems

The Service Employees International Union on Sunday reported spending nearly $1 million on an independent expenditure television campaign praising eight House Democrats for backing a health care bill earlier this month.

Here’s how the SEIU spent $998,000 among the eight districts: Baron P. Hill, Indiana’s 9th district ($162,000); Dina Titus, Nevada’s 3rd ($157,000); Paul W. Hodes, New Hampshire’s 2nd ($144,000); Earl Pomeroy, North Dakota’s at-large ($142,000); Tom Perriello, Virginia’s 5th ($126,000); Michael H. Michaud, Maine’s 2nd ($119,000); Brad Ellsworth, Indiana’s 8th ($90,000); and Joe Donnelly, Indiana’s 2nd ($58,000).

It’s a pretty diverse group in terms of geography and political security. All are seeking re-election in 2010 except for Hodes, who is running for the Senate. Perriello and Titus are serving their first terms and probably face tougher races than the other five who are seeking re-election.
