U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador has won another victory to represent Idaho's 1st Congressional District by beating Democratic challenger James Piotrowski.
 
This will be Labrador's fourth term in office.
 
It could be his last because he has said he would decide after the election whether he will run for governor in 2018.
 
Observers have said Labrador would be a formidable gubernatorial candidate. Two others have said they will run for governor.
 
Piotrowski is a Boise attorney who was in his first political race.
 
The campaign was notable because Piotrowski raised more funds than Labrador in recent months.
 
Idaho's 1st congressional district includes the northern half of the state and snakes down to the western part of the Treasure Valley. It includes parts of Boise.
