IACI is stepping directly into campaigning this year, mounting independent expenditure campaigns on behalf of three incumbent Idaho lawmakers and one Senate challenger in the GOP primary election. The business lobbying group reported spending $2,640 on a mailing and advertising on behalf of Clayton Cramer of Horseshoe Bend, who’s challenging Sen. Tim Corder, R-Mountain Home; and $3,987 for a direct-mail piece and advertising supporting Sen. Russ Fulcher, R-Meridian, and Reps. Cliff Bayer, R-Boise, and John Vander Woude, R-Nampa. The Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry is running the independent expenditure campaign through the newly renamed “IACI Business PAC.”
