My story today about GOP Sen. Jim Risch’s new Democratic challenger Nels Mitchell mistakenly said the Risch campaign declined my request for comment Tuesday.
That was incorrect. I received a timely reply Tuesday from Jason Risch, the senator’s son and campaign spokesman. But it was routed to my spam folder and I didn’t see it. The email from Jason Risch contained the same statement I used in the story, which I obtained from the Risch campaign website.
I amended the story online early today, but want to acknowledge my mistake here.
