Candidate Farris has TV ad, but still trying to raise the money to actually air it…

1st District Democratic challenger Jimmy Farris has a "buoyant" 60-second TV ad filmed and ready to go, but doesn't have the cash yet to actually run it, reports Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey. Popkey reports that Farris, a former NFL football player and Lewiston native, is hoping to tap his former teammates in a fundraising push. You can read Popkey's report here, and see Farris' ad here, which opens with the broad-shouldered young man on the state Capitol steps, saying, "People from small towns know how to dream big. ... My dreams never included being a politician, but I always wanted to make a difference."
