Russ Fulcher

Former State Senator Russ Fulcher (R - Meridian) has announced that he will be a candidate for Governor of the State of Idaho in 2018, stating:

“Idaho’s economic growth is anemic, under-employment is more than 20%, Idahoans are among the lowest paid citizens in the nation, and nothing is being done to reduce our dependence on a broke, and broken, Federal government.”

Fulcher was runner-up in a tightly contested gubernatorial primary in 2014. He said: “…our message of empowerment, advancement and citizen-led state control over federal dependency - resonated loudly.  I am blessed with life experience that provides me with a wonderful vision for what Idaho CAN BE!”
