He was a Republican who served as Idaho’s lieutenant governor from 2003 to 2006 and again from 2007 to 2009, as well as governor from 2006 to 2009. Risch was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Helen B. and Elroy A. Risch, a Wisconsin Bell lineman. His father is of German origin, while his mother is Irish, Scottish, and English. From 1961 to 1963, Risch studied at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee before transferring to the University of Idaho in Moscow, where he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. He earned a bachelor’s degree in science.
Risch was first elected to the Idaho Senate in 1974, representing Ada County. In 1976, he became the majority leader of the state senate and then the president pro tempore. Risch was defeated for reelection in 1988 by Democratic political novice and Boise attorney Mike Burkett in a stunning upset. It is still Idaho’s most expensive legislative race as of mid-2006. Risch was defeated in the 1994 primary election for a state Senate seat by Roger Madsen, his second political failure. In 1995, Risch was re-elected to the state senate as an appointee of Governor Phil Batt, who had selected Madsen as the director of the state commerce department.
Risch had his eye on the lieutenant governor’s position vacated by Butch Otter’s resignation after being elected to Congress in January 2001, but Governor Dirk Kempthorne nominated state Senator Jack Riggs of Coeur d’Alene instead. Risch defeated Riggs in the Republican primary the next year and went on to win the general election, spending $360,000 of his own money in the process.
Risch was anticipated to run for governor in the Republican primary in 2006, replacing Kempthorne, who was serving his second term at the time of his federal appointment. Otter, on the other hand, had already declared his candidacy for the seat in December 2004 and had gotten a head start on campaigning and fundraising.
Risch stated his desire to run for lieutenant governor again in November 2005. Risch ran unchallenged for the Republican primary for lieutenant governor in 2006, and in the general election, he defeated former Democratic U.S. Representative Larry LaRocco. In January 2007, Risch’s stint as governor came to an end, and he returned to the position of lieutenant governor. He resigned from his position as a liar.
Risch was the first senator to fall asleep during the first day of opening arguments in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial on January 21, 2020. Art Lien, a courtroom sketch artist, immortalized his nap. Risch opted not to press Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to testify at the annual budget hearing in 2020, while Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Pompeo had just succeeded in getting State Department Inspector General Steve Linick fired; Linick was leading a watchdog inquiry into the Trump administration’s plan to sell armaments to Saudi Arabia without legislative approval at the time. He was the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during his time there.
