With the first quarter reporting period drawing to a close on March 31, both Democratic candidates running to replace Bill Sali as Idaho's 1st District Congressman are focusing on end-of-period fundraising pushes.
You can make a difference. You count. You matter. You can be part of the change that we see sweeping Idaho and the nation this year. You can help us restore America to the greatness it deserves.
We can do it together. But you must do it now. Stand up and be counted. Your numbers, the number of supporters we can tally, is as important at this point in my campaign as the bottom line. We need everyone’s support to make it work. [...]

Grant will be on the road again in North Idaho this week, see Red State Rebels for locations and times. Don Rosebrock, Grant's communications director, answers, "Why all the road trips," with:
That's how Larry is running his campaign in the 1st District, at the grassroots level, literally where the rubber meets the road. The road in this case is Highway 95, the backbone of the 1st District, the infamous 'goat track.'
It's where the people are and people are what the campaign is about. The grassroots level is where you meet them--the Democrats, the Independents, and, yes, the Republicans alike. It's where you sit down to talk to them, listen to them, hear their stories, answer their questions, share their concerns, and plan to get the country back on track.
It's grassroots campaigning and it's building the foundation and future of the Democratic Party in Idaho.
Walt Minnick's new finance director, Amber Pence, says the campaign is hoping for 100 new donors before March 31.
Walt has done an amazing job of raising money -- he's had more success than almost any other candidate in the country! But we need your donation. We need to raise every penny we can before March 31, and that's why we set a goal of 100 new donors before that deadline.
Along with campaigning in North Idaho with former Gov. Cecil Andrus, last week Minnick spent some time giving back.
Campaigning is a family affair for the Minnick clan, but we don't let it get in the way of the things we love to do, whether it's my daughter's soccer games, my training for the Boston Marathon or our volunteer time in the community.
On Easter Sunday we were lucky to be able to deliver meals to four senior couples through the Meals on Wheels program. Unfortunately, in these tough economic times Idaho's seniors are hit hard. That's why programs such as Meals on Wheels are so critical to our communities.
