(IDAHO FALLS, ID) — Local Attorney, Bryan Smith, officially announced his intention to run for Idaho’s 2nd Congressional district against Mike Simpson this fall. He spent the day Thursday in press briefings across the state, from Boise to Idaho Falls where he called for a return to the values that promote limited-government, economic freedom and personal liberty.
“Our five children are the reason why I stand here today. I’ve had a chance to live the American dream. And I worry that all of our children won’t have that same opportunity. Times are tough for many Idahoans, and Congressman Simpson doesn’t have the solutions. It’s been thirty years of failed policies that have brought us to this point,”
“We can get this economy going again but that means cutting spending in a real way, fixing our broken tax system, and reducing regulatory burdens on small businesses.”
A graduate of BYU, Smith and his wife Sharon have five children and live in Idaho Falls.
