In District 1, GOP incumbent Raul Labrador faces a challenge from Jimmy Farris (D), a former NFL player. In addition, Rob Oates is seeking the seat as a Libertarian and Pro-Life (Marvin Thomas Richardson) is running as an Independent.
Currently, the Republican Party holds both of the two Congressional seats from Idaho. According to race ratings, no partisan switches are likely to occur, and both incumbents are expected to cruise to an easy victory on election day.
Idaho is split between the Mountain and Pacific time zones.
