Senate Guru: LaRocco Has A Chance

Democrats have their strongest pick-up opportunity for a Senate seat in Idaho (yes, Idaho!) in many years. Former Congressman Larry LaRocco is positioned to be not only very competitive but - truly - victorious against Republican nominee Jim Risch. As some know, LaRocco and Risch faced off just two years ago in Idaho’s Lieutenant Gubernatorial race. In that race, Risch defeated LaRocco by a 58-39 margin. So how can LaRocco make back the 20 point swing necessary to defeat Risch in 2008? There are actually a great many factors that will impact the 2008 Senate race that weren’t factors in the 2006 Lt.
