A Closer Look At One Of The Groups Looking To Influence Boise's Mayoral Election

via Facebook


Money in politics is not new to statewide and federal elections in Idaho. But what is unusual is the amount of  money we’ve seen poured into Boise’s mayoral race from a variety of political action committees. After this week’s historic mayoral election leading to a runoff on December 3, Idaho Matters is taking a closer look at one of those groups -- Conservation Voters for Idaho -- which has endorsed and is supporting candidate Lauren McLean.  

Correction: In the original version of this story we incorrectly quoted the amount of money CVI has spent on McLean's campaign. The group has spent $130,000 on the candidate.
