Trouble for US Rep Mike Simpson?

Commentator Bill Colley of Fox News Radio 1310 KLIX says U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson could be pressed in his re-election bid, yet:

She hasn’t yet made up her mind. Former State Representative Janice McGeachin tells me she’s being encouraged by many people to run for U.S. House next year. McGeachin, a Republican, would be challenging fellow Republican and current U.S. Representative Mike Simpson in Idaho’s Second Congressional District. McGeachin is a successful business owner and popular among state conservative leaders, many of whom have been telling me for the last couple of weeks they believe McGeachin can topple a man they see as Republican-in-Name-Only. McGeachin supported Russ Fulcher’s attempt to primary C.L. “Butch” Otter. Fulcher came within 8,000 votes of toppling the sitting Governor. Some Republican insiders tell me it reflects the growing muscle of the conservative and Tea Party wings of the party. More here. (Photo from past McGeachin campaign Web site)

Question: Do you follow 2nd District Congressman Mike Simpson's career at all?
