Republican candidate pleaded guilty in dumping case in North Dakota


Chad Christensen, who is challenging Rep. Tom Loertscher, R-Bone, entered a guilty plea in a 2014 North Dakota case that was originally charged as a felony. In a statement, Christensen denied that he had done anything wrong in the incident, and charged that his opponent was issuing last-minute low blows.

Potts used campaign funds for rent, food, etc.


Sen. Tony Potts’ campaign finance fillings show he did the bulk of his campaign spending during the legislative session on expenses such as housing, food and travel that are not obviously related to campaigning. The Idaho Falls Republican declined in an interview to answer questions about specific expenditures. He said the expenditures have been carefully reviewed and are legal.
