Risch to seek new Senate term

Idaho Senator Jim Risch has formally announced he will seek re-election in 2020.

In a news release, Risch said he had the endorsement of President Trump, the rest of the Idaho Congressional Delegation, and Governor Brad Little.

“I want to continue working to lower taxes so Idaho families keep more of their hard-earned money, fighting for a smaller, less intrusive government, encouraging the growth of small businesses that offer good jobs and affordable healthcare to Idaho workers, and protecting the rights of Idahoans and rural America,” said Risch.

Risch also said he would continue to push for lower taxes, less intrusive government and the growth of small business that could provide healthcare to Idaho workers.

Risch has served as Chairman of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee, co-chair of the Senate Semiconductor Caucus, co-chair of the National Labs Caucus, and Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
