Democrat Nels Mitchell was defeated by Sen. Jim Risch (R-Idaho) on Tuesday.

Mitchell clinched the Democratic nomination earlier this year by beating William Bryk in the Democratic primary.

Risch was first appointed to the U.S. Senate in 2008 following the resignation of then-Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho).
