Ranking Member Risch Welcomes Foreign Relations Committee Fall 2023 Interns

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, recently welcomed five new committee interns for the fall term.


“I am pleased to welcome five new interns to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee,” said Risch. “These interns will have the opportunity to experience firsthand how the Senate navigates global challenges and how the United States must continue to be a leader in addressing them – from conflicts like Russia’s war on Ukraine, to China’s increasing aggression in the Indo-Pacific, and civil unrest in the Middle East.”
