Eye On Boise

Two GOP senators face off for same seat…

Times-News reporter Melissa Davlin today profiles the race between two Senate incumbents from the Magic Valley: Sens. Bert Brackett, R-Rogerson, and Tim Corder, R-Mountain Home. The two, thrown into the same district by redistricting, say they vote together 95 percent of the time, but there are key differences. You can read Davlin's full report here. Corder is a fourth-term senator, trucking company owner and current chairman of the Senate Local Government & Taxation Committee. Brackett is a second-term senator who earlier served a House term, a rancher, and a member of the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee.
