Idaho GOP Reiterates Vote Neutrality

The Idaho Republican Party released the following news release this afternoon: “In response to an article that came out Thursday morning that quotes Chairman Barry Peterson as stating a personal affinity for a candidate in the Republican primary, the Idaho Republican Party reiterates that the State Central Committee of the Idaho GOP has not made any endorsements of primary candidates. “The view that was expressed in that article was my own, and not that of the Idaho GOP,” said Chairman Peterson. “There is a hard fought primary taking place, and everyone is going to have to pick a candidate when they vote. But because of my role as chairman of the party, I should not have shared my personal opinion publicly. This in no way changes the neutral role or function of the Idaho GOP office and staff during the primary” Betsy Russell/Eye on Boise provides more here.
