Risch To Seek Re-Election In 2014

U.S Senator Jim Risch announced today he will seek to retain his Senate seat in the 2014 election. “I will run for re-election in 2014,” said Risch.  When I ran for this office just over four years ago, I said our country was facing many challenges.  Those challenges not only remain, they have gotten worse.  The federal government is attempting to fully take over healthcare, our annual deficit and national debt are out of control and the rights of states continue to be trampled upon.  Idahoans are opposed to the ever-growing role of the federal government in their lives, and my votes in the Senate have reflected that sentiment”/Jason Risch, news release.

Question: Has Jim Risch been an effective U.S. senator for Idaho?
