BOISE -- A northern Idaho Republican aiming to switch from the House to the Senate in November spent more on efforts to oust fellow GOP lawmakers in their primary races than he spent on his own campaign.
In Rep. Bob Nonini's own campaign report, he reports spending $3,400.
He doesn't have a Senate primary foe.
But Nonini is spending lavishly to defeat Republican incumbents he disagrees with.
That's something that may require some serious fence-mending, should his targets win and return to the Senate chamber that Nonini aspires to.
Through his Idaho Association of Good Government PAC, Nonini dished out at least $12,000, including for independent expenditures, to defeat Sens. Shawn Keough of Sandpoint; Dean Cameron of Rupert; and John Tippets of Bennington.
Rep. George Eskridge of Dover also drew Nonini's ire.
