Two years ago, three of four members of Idaho's congressional delegation faced reelection, and the closest of those races was between U.S. Democratic Rep. Walt Minnick and Republican challenger, former Idaho State Rep. Raul Labrador.

Labrador won, echoing a trend seen across the country as Democrats lost ground in Congress, including control of the U.S. House of Representatives, though Democrats managed to maintain a slim majority in the Senate.
