Eye On Boise

The latest numbers in 1st CD…

Quarterly campaign finance reports are in at the Federal Election Commission, and the figures for the 1st Congressional District show this: Incumbent Congressman Walt Minnick has raised $1.5 million to date for his re-election bid, including $231,917 this quarter. He’s spent $641,879, including $159,504 this quarter, and has $889,082 cash on hand.

On the GOP side, Vaughn Ward has raised $504,258, including $167,611 this quarter. He’s spent $213,761, including $81,699 this quarter, and has $289,844 cash on hand. He also loaned his campaign $14,199, but made no loans this quarter. Raul Labrador has raised $158,903, including $90,000 in loans from the candidate to his campaign ($40,000 of that in the most recent quarter - however, that’s somewhat of a wash since he also repaid $40,000 in loans to himself during the same quarter, leaving an outstanding loan balance of $50,000); his fundraising drew $35,763 in contributions this quarter; and he has $83,527 cash on hand. There were no reports from the  other GOP candidates on the ballot, Harley Brown, Michael Chadwick, and Allan Salzberg.
