Eye On Boise

Candidates flock to Idaho ballot

Idaho is in for a very busy election season this year, with positions from governor down to North Idaho legislative seats drawing multiple candidates prior to today’s 5 p.m. deadline. The state’s primary election is May 20, and voters will have plenty of choices. At the top of the ticket, every top office-holder except for state Treasurer Ron Crane has drawn a GOP primary challenger. So have all but one of the North Idaho incumbent lawmakers in Districts 1 through 4 who are seeking re-election. The lone exception: Second-term Sen. Steve Vick, R-Dalton Gardens, who is unopposed. You can read my full story here at, and see the full list of candidates here.
