Priest River – Republican candidate for Congress, Russ Fulcher, came to Priest River on a hot Timber Days parade day and brought revellers welcome relief: free, cold bottles of water. When he gets to D.C., though, he plans on turning up the heat — on the federal government.
Job one is to “right-size control between the federal government and the state,” he said. Right now, locals and the state have to react to whatever Washington D.C. says. Fulcher explained that his aim is to decrease the inflence and control of the federal government and return power to the people.
“If you put decision making authority in the hands of locals, it tends to work out better,” he said.
