Voters in Idaho's 1st congressional district are electing someone to fill an open seat. In a normal election year, this would be a great, big yawn of a campaign. But this is not a normal year.
Slate's Bruce Reed profiles the district and reports that this traditionally strong GOP district is apparently up for grabs. He notes that yesterday's Roll Call reported:
"The latest example of GOP worries about holding onto traditionally staunchly Republican seats was manifested in a new ad buy this week in Idaho's 1st district, where according to a Democratic source, the NRCC just bought three weeks' worth of TV time to defend an open seat that seemed safely in Republican hands."
