Nonini Gives $1K To Cameron Rival

Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, who’s running for the Idaho Senate, has made a last-minute $1,000 campaign donation through his PAC to the primary election challenger of the sitting chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert. That’s a form of political heresy in the Senate that Nonini hopes to join, where past attempts to back challengers to fellow GOP incumbents have brought major sanctions from the Republican caucus. “It’s not particularly good form,” Cameron said. Nonini’s Idaho Association for Good Government PAC made the contribution Wednesday to the campaign of Douglas Pickett of Oakley, who is running against Cameron, an 11th-term senator and co-chairman of the Legislature’s most powerful committee, the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Is this a good way to win friends & influence people in the Idaho Senate that Nonini hopes to join in January?
