IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -- Republican Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis of Legislative District 33 was sworn in as U.S. Attorney for the State of Idaho on September 22, 2017, creating a vacancy in the state Senate when Senator Davis resigned on September 21, 2017.

Davis is a 10-term state Senator from Idaho Falls with a private legal practice focusing on corporate litigation, bankruptcy and real estate law. He's served as the state Senate majority leader for 15 years.

Davis was sworn in on Thursday as the state's new U.S. Attorney in a ceremony in Pocatello. "I am humbled and honored to continue to serve the great people of Idaho as United States Attorney. I am grateful for the special trust and confidence shown me by President Trump, Attorney General Sessions, Senator Crapo, Senator Risch, and all of those who supported me throughout this process. I inherit a very capable office and look forward to joining them in continuing to do great things," Davis said.

Legislative Chairman Stafford Smith said, "Seventeen individuals have the opportunity to participate in something monumental. We congratulate and thank Senator Davis and wish him the very best in his new assignment."

Rejected GOP candidate pushes onwards to the Electoral College, Donald Eugene Lowe Presidential Candidate

SAN ANGELO, Texas -- Donald Eugene Lowe started working on his presidential campaign in 2013. To date, he has spent less than $20,000 and he's not about to give up now. In fact, he says he's just getting started.

"It's possible," Lowe says. "There are many voters who do not like Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump and that puts me in a very good position. According to my calculations, I have a 52 percent chance of winning."

How is this possible? Lowe explains that he is skipping the general election and instead focusing on winning the Electoral College.

"I'm working to beat these candidates at their own game," he says.

The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. A state's entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for senators.

And, there's no constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their states. Some states, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote.

So, while it's rare for Electors to disregard the popular vote by casting their electoral vote for someone other than their party's candidate, it's not impossible.

After being turned down by the Republican Party for his request for a brokered convention like they used to have for candidates who could not afford a large campaign, Lowe continued to forge ahead.

"While the Republican Party made it impossible for me to run in the general election, they can't eliminate me from the Electoral College," Lowe says. "And, after campaigning at more than 700 locations and traveling more than 400,000 miles, I'm not about to give up now. I might be the only candidate running for the Electoral College and skipping the general election and that's okay. It's America after all - it's a place where dreams come true."
