U.S. Senate elections in Idaho

See also: United States Senate elections in Idaho, 2014 and United States Senate elections, 2014

Voters in Idaho will elect one member to the U.S. Senate in the election on November 4, 2014.

Idaho has a closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party.

The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by Jim Risch (R). Risch was first elected in 2008.

Candidates


Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.

Race background


Incumbent Jim Risch first won election in 2008 by 24 points, and according to most sources there is little reason to believe he would win by less than that in 2014.[1] No Democrat has been elected to the Senate from Idaho since 1974, and a Democrat has been elected only once to the House since 1992.[1] There also have been no Democrats mentioned as potential challengers, making Risch's run for re-election fairly straightforward.[1]

Issues


Government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "No" During the shutdown in October 2013, the Senate rejected, down party lines, every House-originated bill that stripped the budget of funding for the Affordable Care Act. A deal was reached late on October 16, 2013, just hours before the debt ceiling deadline. The bill to reopen the government, H.R. 2775, lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[2] The final vote on H.R. 2775 was 81-18, with all 18 votes against the bill from Republican members. Jim Risch voted with the Republican Party against the bill.[3]
