Ysursa files response to GOP primary lawsuit

Secretary of State Ben Ysursa, who was sued by the Idaho Republican Party in their effort to force the closure of the state’s GOP primaries to anyone but registered Republicans, today filed his answer to the party’s lawsuit. The seven-page court filing mostly consists of denying all allegations in the complaint, but it also states that Idaho’s current election laws don’t infringe on the party’s rights of association, and that “the issues presented in the complaint are political questions.” The state’s filing asks that the lawsuit be dismissed and the state be awarded attorney fees and costs; click here to read the state’s answer, and click here to read the original complaint.
