Developer Tommy Ahlquist’s (R) campaign announced Thursday he has raised over $950,000 — $378,000 investment from Ahlquist — from March 1 to June 30. He also spent $790,000. (release)

That left Ahlquist with approximately $160,000 on hand, though Ahlquist’s campaign would not confirm what cash-on-hand it will report. (Hotline reporting)

LITTLE’S BIG PLANS. Lt. Gov. Brad Little (R) “outlined the first details of his economic plan to reduce regulations on Idaho companies and create more job opportunities for Idaho’s young workers if elected governor in 2018. … The economic plan carries familiar details often included in Republican candidate’s campaign promises: Reduce regulation, lower health care costs and find a way to retain and attract Idaho’s young workforce by creating better and higher-paying jobs.” (AP)

“On health care, he called for a series of specific steps aimed at lowering health care costs for Idahoans. ‘Once Congress acts, or does not, under my leadership Idaho will act,’ he declared. Those steps include: Reactivating the state’s high-risk pool, which ended under the Affordable Care Act; it offered a coverage option for people with pre-existing health conditions who couldn’t get insurance.” (Spokane Spokesman-Review)
