Idaho: In E-Mail, Tester Says LaRocco Can Prevail
Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) has penned a e-mail fundraising appeal for ex-Rep. Larry LaRocco (D), who is hoping to upset Lt. Gov. Jim Risch (R) in their quest to replace retiring Sen. Larry Craig (R).
Larry LaRocco is an underdog in this years Senate race in Idaho, Tester writes in the appeal. But Ive been in his shoes and, frankly, I like his chances.
Tester, a freshman, beat three-term incumbent Sen. Conrad Burns (R) in 2006. LaRocco is hoping to beat Risch, to whom he lost the 2006 lieutenant governors race.
