Democratic gubernatorial candidate Keith Allred held a different kind of election-night gathering tonight - he and volunteers gathered at his campaign headquarters, where they stuffed envelopes, fielded calls and worked on a mailing and other projects. Longtime Democratic activist Betty Richardson said it was the first working party for election night she could recall.

"I'm grateful for the support from Idahoans in today's primary," Allred said in a statement. "Now, I invite Idahoans of all political stripes to join me in the months ahead. I'm committed to working harder than ever to make Idaho's government work for all of us.  Idahoans' interests must come ahead of special interests and partisan politics. Idahoans want their schools properly funded and they want their governor to have a plan for boosting Idaho's economy and creating new jobs. I'm excited to work with Idahoans to find practical solutions that work for everyone."
