Eye On Boise

On the campaign front

Former Idaho Congressman Larry LaRocco has passed the halfway mark in his bid to shake 25,000 Idahoans’ hands as part of his campaign this year for lieutenant governor. Tonight, LaRocco will hold a Boise fundraiser with U.S. Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., whom LaRocco described as the highest-ranking House Democrat to come to Idaho to campaign this year. (Of course, on the Republican side, the speaker of the House has already been to Post Falls to stump for GOP congressional candidate Bill Sali.) LaRocco’s do will be at the home of John and Laurie Greenfield in Boise and cost $100 a head.

Meanwhile, LaRocco’s opponent, current Gov. Jim Risch, asked this week about his campaign plans, said, “I have filed for lieutenant governor and I intend to campaign at some point in the fall for lieutenant governor.” Risch said he’s been “busy with running the state government.”
