MOSCOW, Idaho -- An Idaho Senate candidate appears to have gotten some bad advice when he was told to move his press conference planned in front of a set of state offices in Moscow.
District 5 Republican candidate Gresham Bouma organized a press conference Monday on the sidewalk in front of a building leased by the Idaho Department of Labor and the Department of Health and Welfare.
But before the event began, the Lewiston Tribune reported that Bouma and his supporters were asked to find another location. Building owner Rick Beebe said he initially believed holding political events on the property conflicted with state law.
But Idaho Chief Deputy Secretary of State Tim Hurst says he's not aware of any law prohibiting political press conferences on state property.
