De­veloper Tommy Ahlquist (R) has been send­ing dir­ect mail pieces, which tout his con­ser­vat­ive bona fides, to “a sig­ni­fic­ant num­ber of Idaho Re­pub­lic­an primary voters,” Ahlquist seni­or ad­viser Todd Cran­ney said Monday. (Hot­line re­port­ing)

DEMO­CRATS AP­PAR­ENTLY OP­TIM­IST­IC ABOUT OPEN SPE­CIAL. “Like many states across the United States, Idaho doesn’t have resign-to-run laws pre­vent­ing of­fice hold­ers from ded­ic­at­ing time and re­sources to cam­paign for an­oth­er po­s­i­tion. However, that’s not stop­ping” state House Minor­ity Lead­er Mat Er­peld­ing (D) “from ask­ing” Rep. Raul Lab­rador (R-01) “to leave Con­gress while he cam­paigns for the Idaho gov­ernor’s seat while oth­ers are no­ti­cing how oth­er law­makers are us­ing their power while cam­paign­ing for oth­er seats.” (AP)
