Candidate For Idaho Governor Stumps In Twin Falls
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) A lawmaker from Meridian is seeking Idahoans' help to make him the next governor of the Gem State.
State Senator Russ Fulcher is on the "Russ Listens" tour as he stumped Tuesday morning in Twin Falls.
He has served in the Idaho State Senate for more than nine years and is currently the Senate Republican Caucus Chairman.
He's worked on the family dairy farm and spent more than 20 years as a businessman in the technology industry.
Fulcher is concerned about the direction Idaho and the nation are heading and felt the decision to run was necessary.
"For me it was last year over the healthcare debate, the way it came down and how it came down, that decision in the legislature was really telling issue to me because it's such a big deal and impacts absolutely everyone. So when that happened, I thought maybe I should get involved," adds Fulcher.
Senator Fulcher planned to head to Gooding and Mountain Home later in the day, before making the Treasure Valley the next leg of his tour.
