Hal Styles lives in Southern California, and he’s never been to Idaho. But he’s running in Idaho’s open Republican primary for United States Senate. From his home in Desert Hot Springs, just a few miles from the better-known Palm Springs, he returned my call and exuberantly held forth. “The reason I want to be the U.S. Senator from Idaho? It’s one of the western states and I must stay in the west, and everything I’ve heard about Idaho is beautiful and gorgeous, and I want to serve America, it’s in my blood. What better place than the Senate where I can serve the desires and wishes of Idahoans and then come home and say OKAY, TEAM! What do you want, what do you like?” Styles refuses to tell his age but his life story puts him in his 70s or early 80s. He says he’s “moving to Boise sometime soon but I can’t say exactly when”/Jill Kuraitis, New West Idaho editor. More here
Question: Do you have a message for our idealistic friend from California who wants to represent Idaho in the U.S. Senate?
