Sali's late file

The results are in, finally.

After taking a whole lot of flak from his political rivals, Rep. Bill Sali filed his most recent campaign finance report with the Federal Elections Commission 10 days after it was due.

While Sali's campaign organizers said the delay was due to problems uploading the report to the FEC, his rivals, including House opponent Walt Minnick, gleefully pointed out that he was one of only two candidates who failed to file the report by the deadline.

The final report shows that Sali took in $139,245 between May 8 and June 30. He ended the filing period with $250,248 in cash on hand. The report also shows that, contrary to reports from his campaign, Sali did not pay down his $135,674 debt.

In all, Sali has taken in $657,481 in donations since the beginning of his run, with nearly 72 percent of it coming from political action committees, according to the FEC. Twenty-six percent has come from individual donors, with the remaining from "other" sources.

His Democratic competitor, Minnick, raised $286,884 in the same period and reported $444,134 cash on hand.

In all, Minnick has collected $997,053, although he has loaned himself $157,684 of that, according to the FEC. The majority of Minnick's donations, 72 percent, have come from individual donors, while PACs have contributed 11 percent.
