"Former Idaho Congressman Larry LaRocco is serious about shaking 25,000 Idahoans’ hands during his campaign for lieutenant governor – he’s numbered the campaign brochures he hands out, to track his progress toward the 25,000-handshake goal. ... If the 25,000 mark seems unlikely, a look back to 1982 might suggest otherwise. That was the year LaRocco ran unsuccessfully for Congress against Republican Larry Craig, and he used a most unusual campaign strategy. He quit his job, and took a job in every county in the 1st Congressional District for a week at a time – including working at a Coeur d’Alene nursing home, building logging roads in Bonners Ferry, counseling displaced workers in Shoshone County, picking apples with migrant workers in Canyon County, working as a garbage man in Orofino, waiting tables at the Pancake House in McCall, and more."
