Idaho R’s Consider Loyalty Oath

Friday, Dan Loughrey, a candidate for the Idaho Legislature, proposed that members of the platform committee support a plan to require Republican candidates for public office at all levels – local, state, and national – sign a pledge stating that they will govern and serve according to the party platform. If the party as a whole decides to adopt the measure, it would also require the party chairman to release a list of who signed – and who didn’t – 40 days before elections/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter. More here.

Question: What do you make of a loyalty oath that would require candidates to govern by the platform of a political party?
