Idaho’s Big Winner: Mike Simpson

The Republican takeover of the U.S. House makes Rep. Mike Simpson (pictured in AP file photo, left) chairman of Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior and Related Agencies and the second-ranking Republican on the Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development. The two committees are in charge of funding the federal agencies that control 64 percent of Idaho’s land area. Simpson also was an early supporter of House Speaker-in-waiting John Boehner. The Idahoan is one of six Republican congressman in Boehner’s inner circle/Rocky Barker, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Who were the winners & losers from the 2010 elections, locally & statewide?
