Saying she will take up where Gov. Butch Otter's primary challenger left off, Republican Lori Den Hartog announced Monday she will seek an open Idaho Senate seat in southwest Ada County, including Kuna. Her website features the slogan, "Focused. Fresh. Conservative."
Den Hartog's news release salutes the current senator, Majority Caucus Chairman Russ Fulcher, R-Meridian, who is challenging Otter in the May 20 primary.
"It is important for me to continue the great work that Senator Fulcher has done over the years with a new and fresh perspective," Den Hartog said in the release.
Den Hartog is the first candidate to announce for the open seat. She has a bachelor's from Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, with a major in business administration and a minor in public administration. Den Hartog is married, with three young children.
