BOISE, Idaho (AP) — U.S. Sen. Jim Risch has announced his 2020 re-election campaign in Idaho.

The 76-year-old Republican in a statement Monday says socialist agendas in Congress make it his duty to run for re-election and stand up for conservative solutions.

Risch has held the office since 2009 and is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

He says he wants to continue to work to lower taxes, have a smaller government and encourage the growth of small businesses.

Nancy Harris, a Democrat, is challenging Risch.
