Lodge to Seek Seventh Idaho Senate Term


Huston Republican Sen. Patti Anne Lodge has announced her intention to run for a seventh term in the Idaho Senate.

Lodge could end up facing off with Parma Republican Sen. Melinda Smyser, who has been reapportioned into District 11. Smyser has yet to announce her intentions.

Lodge is the chair of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee and also serves on the State Affairs and Joint Millennium Fund committees.
