Republicans Unite!

It was great to see so many Republicans at the Riverside Hotel on Tuesday night. The Idaho GOP’s watch party provided candidates and voters an opportunity to connect as the primary results came in. It was a long campaign season, filled with signs, mailers, text messages, ads, and front door conversations, all leading to one night. We congratulate all who dedicated their time and energy to share their message with the voters of Idaho, who have now spoken.

The primary campaign is over, and it is time to unite as Republicans. Whatever disagreements we had before Tuesday, it is time to set them aside and join forces to protect our God-given freedoms. The other party supports unlimited abortion until birth, indoctrinating children to believe they can change their gender through drugs and surgeries, pervasive restrictions on our rights to free speech and self-defense, and cradle-to-grave government welfare.

Republicans offer a different vision: children growing up safely with parents and/or family in a community that still upholds the values that made Idaho the greatest state in America.

Tuesday’s results showed that the Republican grassroots remain strong. Despite unprecedented amounts of money — even hundreds of thousands of dollars targeting precinct committeeman races — the people made their own choices. They did not necessarily choose the candidates with the most mailers or text messages but those who engaged in neighborhood outreach. A hundred ads cannot beat one candidate who knocks on doors and speaks personally to their neighbors.

This community spirit is what makes Idaho great and it is how we will keep Idaho great. Money in politics is not going away. However, we do want to emphasize the value of face-to-face contact!

The amazing thing about our system is that every elected official is ultimately accountable to the voters. No matter how long someone has been in office or how much money they raise, the final decision still rests with the people.

The next step for the Idaho GOP is our State Convention. On Thursday, June 13, 2024, delegates from throughout our great state will meet at the Coeur d’Alene Resort to conduct business. We will elect officers to guide the party for the next two years, vote on new rules and resolutions, and consider revisions to the party platform which outlines the principles Idaho Republicans believe in.

The Convention is a great time to meet fellow Republicans and build relationships with like-minded people throughout Idaho. It is a place for the grassroots to come together and shape the future of our party and our state. Tuesday’s election was a reminder that the people are ultimately in charge of our republic. The Idaho Republican Party — of the people, by the people, and for the people — is stronger than ever.
