Assuming that Risch still doesn't have a site up, this tells us something. One, he doesn't much value the internets. Two, he's probably the Luddite we suspected him of being, and is almost certainly not smart about technology issues. Three, he's passing up donations. Four, he has little interest in connecting with younger and tech savvy folks.
And on a related note, I see that another R has joined the race for Senate. Betsy Russell reports here that Post Falls businessman Richard Phenneger has joined the fray.
In addition to Phenneger and Risch, there’s former eastern Idaho elk rancher Rex Rammell, Caldwell real estate broker and Iraq veteran Scott Syme, and former Caldwell city councilman Kent Marmon.I wonder what these new entrants think about all the R leadership having already endorsed Risch. I wonder what the leadership thinks about this? It was one thing to try to freeze out Rammell, and perhaps pressure Craig, by boarding the Risch campaign bus before the primary. Now that other credible candidates have surfaced, is the leadership having second thoughts? If not, I guess that shows that Idaho's GOP truly is a good ol' boys club, and the party leadership is happy to anoint the winners rather than leave it up to the voters.
