The Hill's Rich List was published yesterday and Idaho's junior senator made the list. That's right, Jim Risch made the list of wealthiest members of congress with a reported $19.3m net worth. The short blurb accompanied by a large head shot of Risch notes land owned in Twin Falls and Arapahoe County. Stumped me for a bit given there isn't an Arapahoe County in Idaho! What wasn't surprising is that The Hill made note of Risch's ability to bankroll his own campaigns (for Lt. Gov. and Senate). Perhaps Risch should start putting that money to good use and bank roll a few hundred Idahoans who are without health care...
