Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa has made his victory speech - he was unopposed in the GOP primary. “I’ve been on pins and needles all night,” Ysursa joked, joined by his wife Penny. Asked about the turnout in today’s primary election, Ysursa said, “We hear there are pockets of good turnout, but … it’s hard to tell. I hope I’m wrong - I hope we’re higher than 26 percent. We’ll see.” Ysursa has been predicting a 26 percent turnout of registered voters in today’s primary, a typically low Idaho primary election turnout. “The calls were it was kind of an uneventful day,” Ysursa said. “It was kinda quiet”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.
