Last-minute campaign cash flying in governor’s race

In this final period before the May 20 primary election, large donations – those of $1,000 or more – must be reported by Idaho candidates within 48 hours. So far, last-minute campaign cash has been flowing to Gov. Butch Otter and GOP challenger Russ Fulcher. Since last week, Otter has received eight of those donations and Fulcher has received five.

Here are Otter’s: $10,000 from Frank and Belinda VanderSloot; $10,000 from Allan P. Bloxsom III of Boerne, Texas; $5,000 each from JP Morgan Chase and CenturyLink Idaho PAC; $4,000 from Comcast Corp.; $2,500 from the NRA Political Victory Fund; and $1,000 each from the Idaho Cattle Association and Phoenix-based Apollo Group.

Fulcher has received $5,000 each from Jack Beverage and Kelly Beverage of Middleton and Ben Buckendorf of Boise; $2,000 from Rod Furniss of Rigby; and $1,000 from Ryan Moyle of Heyburn.
