Idaho's 1st congressional district is one of two congressional districts in the U.S. state of Idaho. It comprises the western portion of the state. After statehood in 1890, Idaho had only one seat in Congress through the 1910 election, a statewide at-large seat. Following the 1910 census, Idaho gained its second seat in the House; it was first contested in 1912, but the state did not immediately apportion into two districts. Through the 1916 election, both were statewide at-large seats. The first election in Idaho with two congressional districts was in 1918. Beginning with the 2012 election cycle, the district lost nearly all of its Boise precincts to the 2nd district. A significant increase in population directly west of Boise over the previous decade, in western Ada County and Canyon County, was responsible for the westward shift of the boundary. In Ada County, the district continues to include Meridian, Eagle, and some parts of southwest Boise. Northward, all territory remains in the 1st district, through the Panhandle. The 1st district is currently represented by Raúl Labrador, a Republican from Eagle. First elected in 2010, he defeated Democratic incumbent Walt Minnick by over nine points and was easily re-elected in 2012. (More from Freebase)
