The Senator

OnLocation at the Coeur d'Alene Resort for the annual Women in Red Luncheon I had the opportunity to meet former US Senator Jim McClure. Nearly 84-years-old, he has a very long and illustrious career in service to Idaho. McClure served in the state senate from 1961 to 1966 then was elected to the US Congress, serving from 1967 to 1973. He was elected to the US Senate in 1973 where he served for 18 years before retiring. A fascinating man, I was glad to see him enjoying this northern part of Idaho on such a beautiful day.
