1st District race getting bigger

It looks like the already contested primary election for Idaho's 1st District congressional seat – now held by Republican Bill Sali – is getting even moreso. Sali is facing Iraq vet Matt Salisbury on the GOP side, and former Micron exec Larry Grant, whom Sali narrowly defeated to win election, is running along with Rand Lewis on the Democratic side. Now it looks like former Democratic senatorial candidate Walt Minnick also is getting into the race. Minnick supporters handed out invites today at a Coeur d’Alene Democratic lunch to a “campaign kickoff” he’s planning for next Wednesday, featuring former Gov. Cecil Andrus – who last year endorsed Grant.
