Notes: 
Sen. Crapo's conservative stances and record were more in tune with Idahoans, and he won a fourth term by a wide margin, defeating investment banker Jerry Sturgill (D), a first-time candidate, and Ray Writz (C).  Crapo did face a couple of challenges along the way.  There was a 2012 DUI, and the tricky situation in Oct. 2016 following release of the Access Hollywood tapes (he un-endorsed Trump (>), but later reversed that to support the Republican ticket).  Crapo, chief deputy whip and chair of the Senate Banking Committee, benefitted from a sizable campaign warchest; according to the FEC, for 2015-16 the Crapo campaign reported disbursements of $6.3 million compared to disbursements of $818,485 for the Sturgill campaign (+).
