Congressman Mike Simpson has a challenger for 2014.
Idaho Falls attorney Bryan Smith will announce his candidacy for congressional district 2 on Thursday, according to a public Facebook event page created by Rod Beck. Over the next week, he’s stopping by Boise, Twin Falls, Idaho Falls and Pocatello.
Here’s the link to the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/515984561789475/.
Smith is already listed as a Simpson opponent on The Green Papers. The Green Papers lists Smith as a Republican, though the event site doesn’t specify, and Smith’s own Facebook page lists him as a constitutional conservative. According to The Green Papers, Congressman Raul Labrador doesn’t yet have any challengers.
But we have nearly eleven months until the primary, and more than a year until the general election. We’ll see how long it takes for someone else to throw their hat in the ring.
