Risch is Ready

Did we ever mention that Governor Lt. Governor Jim Risch is ready to announce his plans about Craig's Senate seat?

The ever-ready Risch, who has consistently said he is considering Craig's seat "ifandonlyif" Craig resigns, said he'll talk on Tuesday.

Here's the full Rischy statement:

"As early as last February, people throughout the state have been speculating that Senator Craig was planning on retiring from the US Senate. Many have contacted me stating they liked the no nonsense approach that I demonstrated as Governor and they think I would do a good job for Idaho in the US Senate. I owe all those people an answer. They will have it early next week."
