United States Senate elections in Idaho, 2014
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.
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.
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. 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. There also have been no Democrats mentioned as potential challengers, making Risch's run for re-election fairly straightforward.
On November 4, 2008, Jim Risch won election to the United States Senate. He defeated Larry LaRocco (D), Rex Rammell (I), Pro-Life (I), Kent A. Marmon (L) and Kevin Volkmann (I) in the general election.
