Eye On Boise

Last-minute campaign cash continues to fly

Last-minute campaign money continues to fly ahead of Tuesday’s election; you can see all the latest independent expenditure reports here, and the statewide candidates’ 48-hour notices here. Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News tallied up the 48-hour reports, which are required for contributions or independent expenditures of $1,000 or more from Oct. 20 to Nov. 1, and reports that the past two weeks have seen a $1.5 million spending spree in the governor’s race, including fundraising by both the leading candidates, incumbent GOP Gov. Butch Otter and Democratic challenger A.J. Balukoff, and independent expenditures by outside groups largely backing Otter and opposing Balukoff.  His full report is online here.
