Jim McClure Biography

When Jim McClure stepped in to run for Congress in 1966 after the Republican nominee was killed in a plane crash, no one knew he would become one of Idaho's best known political figures of the 20th century. McClure served for three terms in the House of Representatives and for 18 years in the U.S. Senate. He worked with six presidents and helped shape Idaho and American history.

McClure and biographer William Smallwood join Joan Cartan-Hansen for a conversation about McClure's life and political career.
