Eye On Boise

Politics inside the party…

In last year’s city elections, there was some controversy about county GOP central committees making endorsements in nonpartisan city races; few did, and in Bonneville County the move backfired, and the endorsements were either declined or the endorsed candidates lost big. Now comes news that the Ada County Republican Central Committee is taking things a bit further: Officially endorsing two incumbent Republican county commissioners over their Republican challengers in the midst of this year’s primary race, because the committee didn’t feel the challengers - both former longtime GOP elected officials - are Republican enough.
