Idaho race gets DC attention

The Hill newspaper reported today that Idaho’s 1st District congressional race is one of 10 targeted by a GOP “Retain Our Majority Program” or “ROMP” fundraiser that raised close to $1 million. This particular fundraiser, according to the paper, is for “candidates in the most desperate need of campaign money.”

The paper said of GOP candidate Bill Sali, “Sali is competing for the seat being vacated by gubernatorial candidate Rep. Butch Otter (R-Idaho), which is normally a very safe Republican district; President Bush won it 69-30 in 2004. But Sali survived a heated primary with just 26 percent of the vote, and there have been rumors of Republican supporters defecting to Democratic candidate Larry Grant.”
