Idaho U.S. Senate Race

Race of the Day

Idaho U.S. Senate

August 16, 2010
78 Days Until Election Day

Status: Republican Incumbent
2008 Presidential Result: Red State (West)

Outlook: Safe Republican

There is not much that needs to be said about this contest. Incumbent Republican Mike Crapo will dispatch his Democrat opponent, financial consultant Tom Sullivan without so much as breaking a sweat. The conservative Crapo remains a good fit for his conservative constituency and this contest will not get much airtime on any of the cable network's Election Night coverage.

Concise enough? Anyone have anything to add on this race?
