Lawmaker vows to quit fundraising

Posted: Thursday, January 24, 2008

JUNEAU - State Rep. Gabrielle LeDoux, R-Kodiak, will suspend fundraising for her congressional campaign.

A two-term member of the state House, LeDoux is running in the Republican primary for the U.S. House seat held by Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska.

Though legal, LeDoux's fundraising raised criticism from members of her own caucus who questioned her ethics.

LeDoux argued she had little choice given Young's formidable war chest. But Wednesday she distributed a letter pledging to halt fundraising for the rest of the legislative session.

A meeting to consider stripping LeDoux's membership in the caucus was canceled.
