  •  Risch's net worth (3+ / 0-)

    Risch's US Senate disclosures peg his net worth betweeen $17 Million and $83 Million.  He granted property tax relief but failed to disclose to Idahoans his vast real estate holdings. He raised the sales tax 20% on food/groceries. He opposes any increase in the minimum wage.  He thinks George Bush is one of America's greatest presidents.  He has no plan for health care modernization/reform.  Any questions?  Larry LaRocco

      Why the hell would anyone vote for him?

      My dogs think I'm smart and pretty.

      •  Risch's post-Palin bounce - over and out (2+ / 0-)

        Risch got a bounce after Palin was nominated.  All of that is coming back down to earth.  Three polls pre-Palin had Risch in low 40's - he is now in that range due to heavy TV ads against him in ALL Idaho markets for raising the grocery tax 20% and opening the door to privatization of Social Security.  Additionally, I prevailed in each debate against him.  I was the clear winner.  The 3 candidates on the right fringe should take 70,000 - 80,000 votes from Risch.  The Demo ground game in Idaho in '08 is awesome.  Larry LaRocco
