Eye On Boise

Campaign finance reports still trickling in after yesterday’s postmark deadline…

Not all the campaign finance reports are in from yesterday's 5 p.m. deadline, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're late: This deadline is a postmark deadline, so some candidates could have mailed their reports with a postmark by 5 p.m. yesterday, and still be on time. Among the North Idaho legislative races for which both reports are in is the race for outgoing Rep. Phil Hart's seat between Republican Ed Morse and Democrat Dan English.

English reported
raising $5,076 in the reporting period and spending $4,213, and had $863 cash on hand and $310 in debt at the close of the period. He received nine donations from individuals in North Idaho; his biggest contribution was $400 from the Kootenai County Democratic Central Committee. Most of English's spending was for campaign literature and advertising.

Morse reported
raising $9,873 in the reporting period and spending $5,874; he had $3,999 cash on hand and $10,000 in debt left over from the primary race. Morse received a slew of PAC contributions, $1,000 from Idaho Power Corp., and $500 from House Assistant Majority Leader Scott Bedke, R-Oakley. Most of Morse's campaign spending went to Strategery Group of Post Falls.
