Dems To Lead Minimum-Wage Tour

Democratic candidates for office in Idaho, led by 2nd District congressional candidate Richard Stallings, Nels Mitchell, who’s running against GOP Sen. Jim Risch, and Bert Marley, who’s challenging Lt. Gov. Brad Little, will tour the southern half of the state next Tuesday in support of the Raise the Minimum Wage Campaign, with rallies in Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Twin Falls and Boise. Stallings’ campaign announced that the plan is to “draw a spotlight on the situation 29,000 Idahoans live with on a daily basis trying to live on $7.25 an hour"/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More information here.

Question: Can Idaho Democrats make hay on the minimum wage issue?
