Idaho Gov. Jim Risch is the keynote speaker for a fundraiser for RPAC, the Idaho Realtors PAC, this Thursday morning in Nampa. The $25-a-head event runs from 8-10 a.m. at the Nampa Civic Center, and is being billed as a “Breakfast with the Governor.” The invitation notes, “All proceeds go directly to RPAC!!”
Risch has insisted he’s too busy running state government to have time for a debate with election opponent Larry LaRocco on live TV, so LaRocco is steamed that the guv has two hours to raise money for the PAC. LaRocco’s running against Risch for lieutenant governor – though Risch is governor now, he’s seeking another four-year term as lieutenant governor in the November election.
