CU-backed candidate wins Idaho Senate primary
WASHINGTON (5/29/08)--With backing from credit unions, Idaho Lt. Gov. Jim Risch won Tuesday’s Republican primary in his bid to fill the retiring Larry Craig’s (R-Idaho) U.S. Senate seat. Risch will face Democrat Larry LaRocco--a former American Bankers Association lobbyist--in the fall general election. In a field of eight GOP candidates, Risch garnered more than 65% of the votes. The Credit Union Legislative Action Council and the Idaho Credit Union League participated in Risch’s campaign.
