Home » Rockies » Idaho » Boise » RischForSenate.com Domain Name Purchased
Rischforsenate.com was bought Tuesday, August 28 by Nightowl Publishing in Ocean Springs Mississippi, according to a web search service. But .net, .org .info and .biz are all available….as of right now. It's impossible to tell if Lt. Gov. Jim Risch is behind the website name registration, since domain names are sometimes registered by people wholly unconnected to the possible user, in hopes of selling the name for a high price. Calls to Risch's office and others have not yet been returned. We will update this story as news develops.

    Risch has been spoiling for this seat since April. It’s frankly embarrassing.
