Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jim Risch made the following statement regarding the passing of former Idaho Governor John V. Evans, Sr.:

“John Evans was one of the most civil and gentle people I dealt with in the political process over the years. He was a committed Idahoan who deeply loved his state. Being in the banking business, he had a clear understanding of free markets and their importance in a free society. His leadership was greatly respected. Vicki and I send our condolences to Lola and the entire Evans family, who we have always considered good friends.”
