Candidate says he’s back in the running

A day after announcing an end to his campaign, David Elton says he’s back in the running for Spokane County Commission.

On Monday, Elton wrote a news release announcing his departure from the race. Today, he told a Spokesman-Review reporter that he’ll still be a candidate because it’s too late to get a refund on his $930 filing fee.

“I will be running,” he said. “But I will not be running a full-fledged campaign.”

Elections Manager Mike McLaughlin said Elton’s check that he submitted earlier this month when he filed to run for the seat bounced. Even so, McLaughlin said it’s past the deadline for him to withdraw.
