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

Congressman Fulcher spent 24 years in the technology sector, including at Micron Technology and Preco Electronics. He sold Idaho products in 60 countries around the world and in every state in America. 

During the ten years Rep. Fulcher served in the Idaho Senate, six years were spent as Majority Caucus Chair. His signature legislation, the grocery tax credit, has returned some $800 million to Idaho’s hard-working families and constitutes the largest tax cut in Idaho’s history. In addition, Congressman Fulcher served on the 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 burden, and to restore our God-given liberties.

Serving in the U.S. House of Representatives since January 2019, Congressman Fulcher currently serves as the Republican Deputy Leader of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water, Power, and Oceans, a member of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Federal Lands, a member of the Education and Labor Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development, and a member of the Education and Labor Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions.
