Congressman Russ Fulcher, a fourth-generation Idahoan, grew up on a dairy farm in Meridian, Idaho. He graduated from Meridian High School, earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in business from Boise State University, and obtained additional certifications in electronic engineering.

Congressman Fulcher spent 24 years in the high-technology industry, working for Micron Technology and Preco Electronics. During this time he did business in 60 countries around the world and in every state in America. 

Congressman Fulcher served in the Idaho Senate for 10 years, six of those years as Majority Caucus Chair – elected by his peers. His signature legislation, Idaho’s grocery tax credit, has returned some $800 million to Idaho’s hard-working families.  It constitutes one of the largest tax cut in Idaho’s history.  In addition, Congressman Fulcher served on the Idaho Senate State Affairs and Education Committees where he fought tirelessly to protect the rights of individual Idahoans, to limit government influence in our lives, to ease our tax and regulatory burdens, and to restore our God-given liberties.

Serving in the U.S. House of Representatives since January 2019, Congressman Fulcher currently sits on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Committee on Natural Resources.  Previously, he sat on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
