A bucket just wasn’t big enough
LEWISTON, ID - Democratic Senate Candidate Nels Mitchell was issued the challenge to participate in the ALS ice bucket challenge, but he took it a step further.

The candidate who is running against Republican Incumbent Jim Risch, was campaigning at the Union Labor Picnic Sunday at the Nez Perce County Fairgrounds.

When he was issued the challenge, he decided a bucket wasn't big enough so instead he was dropped into a dunk tank filled with ice water.

Mitchell took the challenge in honor of Lewiston Firefighter Doug Gregg who has ALS, and then challenged Senator Jim Risch and Congressman Raul Labrador.
