Democrat Jimmy Farris said Monday that he’s leaning toward running for the Legislature in Boise next year, acknowledging that a rematch with GOP Congressman Raul Labrador would be a long shot. Farris got 31 percent of the vote against Labrador last year, running his first race after a career with several teams in the NFL. The Lewiston native and former All-American receiver at the University of Montana is renting a house in Meridian, but said he’s planning to move to Boise soon. He said he expects an incumbent Democrat to retire, giving him an opportunity to seek an open seat. He declined to specify the district, except to say it would likely be in one of the Democratic districts in Boise: 16, 17, 18 or 19/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
