Crapo has $4.5M warchest

Senator Mike Crapo today announced his re-election campaign has raised over $660,000 in the third quarter, representing the second-best fundraising quarter in the history of the Crapo for Senate Campaign. Sixty-five percent of individual donors gave $250 or less, and fifty-four percent of individual donors are from Idaho. The campaign currently has over $4,495,000 cash-on-hand and has raised over $3,300,000 for the 2016 cycle. “Serving the people of Idaho is a privilege and the groundswell of support we have received is tremendous,” said Senator Mike Crapo.  “I share the concerns of my fellow Idahoans about the direction our nation is taking but am heartened by our shared optimism that we can still right the course. Together, we will continue to fight for conservative solutions and our Idaho values in Washington D.C.”

Question: Shouldn't Crapo be a shoo-in for re-election?
