Mitchell Rips Risch In Statesman Ad

Democratic Nels Mitchell, pictured, is using a column I wrote in May 2013 to make the case that Republican Sen. Jim Risch “sees the U.S. Senate as a place to relax, a perch from which to watch dysfunction and gridlock.” “Idaho can't afford a senator who thinks the job is easy,” Mitchell says in the ad. “Our country needs a working senate, and Idaho needs a working senator. Unlike Jim Risch, I won't simply be a senator from Idaho; I will be a senator for Idaho.” Mitchell's ad reproduces excerpts from my May 6, 2013 column. When Mitchell announced for the job in January, he mentioned the article to me as evidence of Risch's vulnerability despite the GOP's strength/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here. (AP file photo)

Question: Are you satisfied/dissatisfied with job U.S. Sen. Jim Risch is doing on behalf of state of Idaho?
