KTVB-Channel 7's Mark Johnson spent a full day in the Capitol with GOP Sen. Jim Risch recently, preparing a program that will air at 9 a.m Sunday as a special edition of "Viewpoint."
A 5-minute version has already aired, and includes Risch telling Idaho constituents he can't support spending $1 billion on a lung cancer bill.
Risch, who repeats recent statements that he will seek reelection in 2014, also chats with Sens. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, John McCain, R-Ariz., and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.
Johnson's 30-minute show promises a "sunup to sundown" account of his day with Risch in Washington.
