U.S. Senate Candidate Nels Mitchell Says Risch Is Running Away from his Record

U.S. Senate candidate Nels Mitchell said today he’s not surprised Jim Risch is touting his dubious achievement as the most obstructionist senator in Washington. “He’s running away from his record,” Mitchell said.

“Risch has turned into ‘Senator No,’ and his negativism is hurting Idaho,” Mitchell said. “When he votes against funding for INL, against protecting women from violence, against payments to Idaho’s rural counties, he’s voting against Idahoans.”

“Jim Risch wants to run as the anti-everything candidate because he has a dismal record of working for Idaho,” Mitchell said. “It’s no wonder he says it doesn’t matter if he’s on the job or not, because when you vote the way he does, it really doesn’t.”

“It’s easy to vote ‘no’ when you’re on the extreme fringe and your vote doesn’t count,” he said. “What’s harder is to roll up your sleeves and get to work for Idaho.  That’s what I’ll do.”

“Instead of bragging about how far right he is, Jim Risch should apologize to the people of Idaho for wasting their time and money doing little but enjoying the perks of office and promoting gridlock and dysfunction,” Mitchell said.

“It’s time for Jim Risch to stop posing at our expense. He should retire – but not on the taxpayer’s dime,” Mitchell said.
