Eye On Boise

GOP candidate has third-party ties

Until recently, reports Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News, GOP state schools superintendent candidate John Eynon was secretary of Idaho’s Constitution Party; he left the third party shortly before filing paperwork to run on the GOP ticket. Richert reports that Eynon’s campaign manager downplayed the maneuvering, saying Eynon had long been a Republican before leaving the GOP for a year or two, but the acting chairman of the Constitution Party says Eynon had indicated as recently as Jan. 9 that he’d run on the Constitution Party’s ticket. You can read Richert’s full report here. Eynon, a music teacher from Cottonwood, recently launched his GOP campaign for state superintendent on a platform of opposing the Idaho core standards.
