A group in north Idaho says they’re tired of the Democrat versus Republican national drama. For the last few years, Republicans have been trying to make local races more partisan. Now, a group called Balance North Idaho is fighting back. Its slate of candidates won big in Tuesday’s election. Balance North Idaho had candidates in four city council races and both mayoral contests in Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls. The president of the political action committee Eden Irgens says election night was tense. “It's 9:00. It's 9:05. It's 9:10. And the first results came out,” she says. “And you have never heard more cheering. Ever.” All of Balance North Idaho's candidates won/Jessica Robinson, NPR News Network. More here.
