BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Former state Sen. Russ Fulcher's campaign says the Republican has raised more than $153,000 since announcing his intent to run for the state's open 1st Congressional District seat. Candidates for the U.S. House and Senate in 2018 elections have a Monday deadline to file campaign finance disclosures with the Federal Election Commission. According to the campaign, Fulcher raised $102,000 between July and September. Former Attorney General David Leroy raised roughly $31,000 in the same time frame, but has raised $145,000 overall since announcing his candidacy in April. Fulcher and Leroy are running against state Rep. Luke Malek of Coeur d'Alene and first-time political candidate Michael Snyder of Bonners Ferry. The 1st Congressional District seat has attracted a wide array of candidates ever since GOP U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador announced earlier this year he would leave Congress in 2018 to run for governor.
