Former Microsoft Executive Suzan DelBene, a Democrat running for the House in Washington state, announced Wednesday that she’s being backed by the state’s governor and four members of its congressional delegation.

Delbene is running against Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.) in his competitive Seattle-area district, and had already put $489,000 of her own funds into her campaign for the seat at the end of September 2009.

Her new endorsements are from Gov. Christine Gregoire (D) and from Democratic Reps. Jay Inslee, Rick Larsen, Jim McDermott, and Adam Smith.

CQ Politics currently rates this general election contest as Leans Republican.
