Former Idaho NFL Player to Run for Legislature

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — Jimmy Farris, a political unknown trounced last year by U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador, plans to seek a seat in the state House. Farris tells the Lewiston Tribune he plans to run as a Democrat in Boise’s District 16. He is seeking the House seat held by Democrat Greg Burgoyne, who is running for the Idaho Senate after Sen. Les Bock retires. Farris is a 1996 Lewiston High graduate who played football at the University of Montana and then for six seasons in the NFL. He lost to Labrador 63 percent to 31 percent in the November 2012 election. When Farris announced his U.S. House bid in October 2011, Idaho Democratic Party Chairman Larry Grant said some had advised Farris to start his political career with a less ambitious goal.
