COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Republican Score. Paul Amador of Coeur d’Alene plans to leave the Idaho Home to run for a northern Idaho state Senate seat that’s being vacated.
Amador told the Coeur d’Alene Press in a story on Thursday that he intends to run for the 4th district seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Mary Souza of Coeur d’Alene.
She announced Tuesday she’s leaving the Senate to run for secretary of state in 2022.
Amador is serving his third period of time in the Home. He chairs the Home Systems and Capability Committee and serves on the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee, which places forward budget funds.
“After serving what’s going to be three terms in the Home, I’ve indubitably appreciated what I’ve realized in my time there,” he stated. “But the Senate gifts a sure state of affairs, for those who will. It’s a smaller neighborhood of contributors, so that you just have a tendency to salvage extra shut-knit relationships on factors and funds whereas working for the of us of the state of Idaho.”
This story has been corrected to fix the final name of the senator to Souza from Sousa in the 2d paragraph.
