Clark, who was briefly a Democratic candidate for president in 2004, said today, “Larry’s campaign of working in jobs all across Idaho has him listening to people in every corner of the state and walking the walk in their shoes. Larry was a great Congressman and will make a great senator for Idaho. I am proud to endorse him today for the U.S Senate.”

LaRocco is a former two-term Democratic congressman who’s seeking the Senate seat now held by GOP Sen. Larry Craig. In his endorsement, Clark said, “He can win this race. It is wide open.”
