BOISE — Leroy for Idaho, the committee dedicated to electing Dave Leroy in Idaho's 1st Congressional District, announced a fundraising haul of $114,004 in a 6-week period for the quarter ending June 30.
Leroy for Idaho also announced Roy Eiguren, a respected, conservative fundraiser and public policy advocate, as his campaign co-chairman. Eiguren celebrated Leroy's strong initial fundraising, stating, “This strong start affords us the ability to effectively inform every 1st District voter of Dave’s conservative, constitutional message of reducing America's bloated federal bureaucracy, protecting our borders, and upholding the founding principles that helped shape America and the great state of Idaho”.
In addition to Eiguren's support, Leroy picked up the endorsements of Former Gov. Phil Batt and Former First Lady Patricia Kempthorne.
