Harwoods: New House power couple

The Idaho Legislature has a new power couple - Dick and Carole Harwood. Rep. Dick Harwood, R-St. Maries, is a sixth-term District 2 representative. Now his wife Carole is in the House chamber too, filling in for newly elected Rep. Shannon McMillan, R-Kellogg, whose husband is ill. “Maybe we set a record,” Carole Harwood said with a smile - spouses serving in the House representing the same district. She said McMillan just called her to ask her to sub yesterday. “As I was leaving the house, I got a call,” Carole Harwood said. “I'm available as long as she needs me.”

Mrs. Harwood hasn't held elective office before, other than a past stint as Republican Party chair for Benewah county. She's now the treasurer.
