Washington Post Magazine profiles Idaho Dem congressional candidate Farris

The Washington Post Magazine has an extensive story today about Idaho Democratic congressional candidate Jimmy Farris, the former NFL football player and first-time candidate who's running against 1st District GOP Rep. Raul Labrador. The article, headed, “Election 2012: Former Redskins player Jimmy Farris in the run of his life in Idaho,” is a warts-and-all tale of a neophyte candidate who takes on a political contest facing long odds, and particularly financially, discovers just how hard it can be. It's an interesting read; you can read it here.
