Former Lewiston Rep. Rusche files for old seat

Former Idaho House Minority Leader and Lewiston Representative John Rusche has filed his candidacy for his old seat.

Rusche, a Democrat, threw his name in the ring for the 6th District position Friday, shortly before the candidate filing period closed. Rusche served six terms in the Idaho House before losing a re-election bid in 2016 to current Republican Representative Mike Kingsley.

Rusche served for eight years as the House minority leader.

Meanwhile, Kingsley has filed for re-election.  (Lewiston Tribune)
