Idaho's GOP Streak Unlikely To End Soon

Mike Crapo (R), first elected in 1998, is seeking a third term. No Democrat has won a Senate race in Idaho since Frank Church won his final term in 1974, and that streak is likely to continue this year. Crapo, who didn't even have a Democratic opponent six years ago, is heavily favored against businessman Tom Sullivan. -Ken Rudin
