GOP gubernatorial hopeful Dr. Tommy Ahlquist today named Damond Watkins as his campaign chairman. Watkins, of Idaho Falls, is Idaho’s national committeeman for the Republican Party. Watkins said he generally doesn’t endorse in primary races, but in the 2018 race for Idaho governor – which already has drawn four major GOP candidates – he decided to take that step.
“I have a longstanding tradition of always supporting the victor coming out of our primaries,” Watkins said in a statement. “I am convinced, however, that the best candidate our party can offer up to the general election voters is Tommy Ahlquist.”
