Rusche endorses Balukoff over Jordan in Dems gubernatorial primary

Former Idaho House Minority Leader John Rusche, D-Lewiston, has endorsed A.J. Balukoff for governor. Rusche announced the endorsement last night during a Nez Perce County Democratic Party meeting in Lewiston. Balukoff faces state Rep. Paulette Jordan, D-Plummer, in the May 15 Democratic primary for governor. “I know this is a man of great integrity, incredible intelligence and immense ability that’s willing to work really, really hard,” Rusche said. “I’m coming out and I’m saying A.J. Balukoff will make a great governor for the state of Idaho and he has my total support.”
