Senator Finishes Tour of All 200 Idaho Cities
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo has completed his mission of visiting every incorporated city in Idaho over the past two years.
The Spokesman-Review reports that Crapo, a Republican, checked off his final town last week with a stop in Wardner in North Idaho's Silver Valley. He had hoped to hold hour-long, town-hall-style meetings in each of the 200 cities, but not all of them had town halls. In those cases, Crapo held meetings in parks -- and, in one case, under a picnic shelter during a rainstorm.
Ruthie Johnson, a former aide to Idaho's late Sen. Jim McClure, says McClure got around the state a lot but she can't remember anyone doing so as extensively as Crapo. Johnson called Crapo's tour "just amazing."
