Didier drops suit against Newhouse campaign volunteer

The Associated Press

SPOKANE — Republican U.S. House candidate Clint Didier has dropped his federal lawsuit against a volunteer for his opponent’s campaign over an alleged misuse of state resources.

Didier had originally sued opponent Dan Newhouse, also a Republican seeking the House seat from central Washington, plus Newhouse’s campaign and volunteer Christopher Voigt, who is the executive director of the state’s Potato Commission.

The Spokesman-Review says U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Rice had ordered Didier to be deposed on Friday by attorneys for Voigt and the potato commission, but Didier dropped the lawsuit on Thursday.

Newhouse and his campaign had already been dropped from the lawsuit on Oct. 16.

Didier had contended that Voigt used his commission account to send emails encouraging people to attend a Newhouse fundraiser and donate to his campaign.
