Idaho

2 seats: 2R     R 65

Idaho has become a very Republican state, with the party now having near one-party dominance of the state legislature. Helen Chenoweth had problems in her district in 1996, but it now is hard for Republicans to lose in Idaho as evidenced by Chenoweth's comfortable win and the open seat win by Mike Simpson against former congressman Richard Stallings in 1998.
