Rep. Russ Fulcher defeated challenger Rudy Soto, winning his second two-year term in Idaho’s First Congressional District. As of Nov. 4, the New York Times reported, Fulcher (Republican) had 68% of the vote compared to 29% for Soto (Democrat) while Joe Evans (Libertarian) acquired 4% of the vote.

On Nov. 6, 2020, Russ Fulcher posted a message to his social media platforms thanking all Idahoans for their votes to re-elect him, “It has been a great privilege to serve the people of Idaho in Congress, and I am humbled with the responsibility to serve again.”

Fulcher showed his gratitude to voters by adding, “Over the past two years, it has been the reasonable, steady hand of my fellow Idahoans that has guided my words and actions… and this will continue to be the case. I remain committed to working towards solutions that will empower people, not government, and I look forward to continuing this work for the next two years.” 

Fulcher is a former five-term state senator who has worked for high-tech firms like Micron and earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business, and a certificate in electrical engineering theory. Fulcher served in the Idaho Senate until 2014 and was elected as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018.
