Remember Rex Rammell, independent Senate candidate and nemesis of Jim Risch? He's back with a scathing guest opinion in Saturday's paper.
The lead: "It didn't take Jim Risch long to show his true colors. On his very first vote in the U.S. Senate, Risch joined Mike Crapo and 10 other liberal Republican and 54 Democratic senators to stop a Republican filibuster, which would have continued debate and allowed for possible amendments to a huge omnibus public land-grab bill."
It didn't take Rammell long to resurface. It could be a long six years.
