NIPAC Leads IN PAC Fund-raising

Only two local political action committees in each of the parties filed campaign disclosure forms with Idaho's Secretary of State office on Tuesday's pre-primary deadline. The North Idaho Political Action Committee has raised the most money of the four groups, bringing in $31,841 during the filing period between Jan. 1 and May 4. It received an additional $1,000 donated after May 4. The Kootenai County Democratic Club raised the second-largest amount of $10,679 for the same reporting period, $6,759 of which came from 218 people who donated the unitemized amount of $50 or less. The Kootenai County Democratic Central Committee comes in third, raising a total of $9,621, and the Kootenai County Republican Concerned Citizens raised $4,502 with another $3,000 from the Integrity in Government PAC of Cottonwood/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

DFO: Looks like the Tea-publicans have control of the Kootenai County GOP Central Committee, but the Reasonable Republicans have control of the money. Thoughts?
