Brody, leading in Idaho Supreme Court race: ‘It’s an affirmation’

The only trend that’s been clear in results in the four-way Idaho Supreme Court race all night tonight: Robyn Brody has been out ahead all evening. The other three candidates have been neck-and-neck for second place. This guarantees a runoff in November, when the top two vote-getters will face off.

Asked about the early results, Brody said, “I’ll put my faith in the people any day of the week, and for me, it’s just an affirmation of everything I’ve been doing for the last two months – reaching out to people, talking to people about what’s important.”

With 509 of 938 precincts reporting statewide, Brody had 31.3 percent; state Sen. Curt McKenzie was second with 25.9 percent; Clive Strong was third with 21.7 percent; and Idaho Court of Appeals Judge Sergio Gutierrez was fourth with 21.1 percent.
