Farris for a team effort

With Jimmy Farris as a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, challenging Raul Labrador, we have a clear choice. Jimmy was born and raised in Lewiston. He graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in marketing and management and played in the National Football League for six seasons, including a Super Bowl win.

Jimmy knows that teamwork wins. He has common-sense solutions for our problems. He wants good jobs, education and health care for all Idahoans.

Jimmy is fiercely independent, believes we can do better, and will not be swayed by powerful outside interests pushing unreasonable political ideology.
