Several Hot Seats in Idaho Elections
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho's general election isn't known for its competitive legislative races due to Republican dominance of state politics, but a handful of seats are heating up as Nov. 4 approaches.
More than 90 of the state's 105 legislative seats have incumbents racing to secure their spots. A third of the incumbents, who are overwhelmingly Republican, face no opponent in the general election after surviving the May primary election.
However, both Republicans and Democrats have placed aggressive candidates in vulnerable districts. For example, Democratic candidate Dick Fosbury of Ketchum, a liberal-leaning area, is running against two-term incumbent Republican Rep.
Steve Miller from rural Fairfield. In northern Idaho, GOP Rep. Cindy Agidius is running against Democratic candidate Paulette Jordan after defeating her by just 120 votes in 2012.
