2022 Idaho Statewide Candidates for Office as of 5/28/2021 – Primaries Only

By • May 30, 2021

The primary elections are less than one year away and candidates are already announcing they are running for office in Idaho.

With at least two open races already, a number of statewide offices are expected to have multiple candidates. Please note that this list will NOT include Congressional races. Idaho Dispatch will have a separate article for Congressional candidates.

The following list is of all candidates from any party who will be running in the primary election next year. Unaffiliated and Independent candidates will NOT be listed here because those candidates only run in the general election.

Idaho Dispatch will try and update this list every few weeks.

Candidates will be listed in alphabetical order by last name and by their political party until primaries are completed. Their websites and social media sites will be posted. An incumbent, if applicable, will also be noted as such. Some candidates have officially announced while others have simply filed a C1 which allows a candidate to raise money for a potential campaign.

Note: Advertising is a part of all Idaho Dispatch articles. Ads appearing in this do NOT denote an endorsement of any candidate. The ads are placed based on the number of paragraphs in the article.

If you notice that your candidate has information available that we do not have, please send the information to info@idahodispatch.com. Social media sites are pulled from a candidate’s website.

    1. Yes, there are democrats, however they are listed as Republicans. Look at their past voting record, and who they really are before they decided to run. Look at there money sources. If it is IACI, they are democrats.

  1. It is disgusting to see Little, Bedke and Wasden on the list of Republican candidates. If the Republican party does not police itself and eliminate RINOs, especially obvious ones like these three parasites and traitors, then it has NOTHING to offer. It is a corrupt and useless organization. The leadership of the party as well as the candidates must be vetted. When they are no different from Democrats in their behavior, how dare they LIE about their conservatism and beliefs. Get real!

  2. Dear Cheryl,
    Unless legally disqualified from holding public office, any citizen, including known RINOS like Little, Bedke and Wasden can run as a registered republican. Its not up the party to vet and eliminate any RINO candidates. It violates our bylaws to do so. Its up to the voters to be informed and vote to keep RINOS out of office. Recent comments by state republican party chair Tom Luna about Ammon Bundy not withstanding, it is the voters who pick the candidate via the primary process. I am not a Bundy fan but I do not agree with the stand taken by the party against Bundy.
    Personally, I despise RINO republicans as much as I despise liberal socialist democrats and fight against both with equal vigor. Do a little homework and find the candidates you can support. The Idaho Freedom Foundations Freedom and Spending Indexes are a good place to start. Don’t blame the Party for bad candidates. In Idaho, Republican Party voters have the final word.

  3. EXPOSE any Democrats that are listed as Republicans !!! We CANNOT let them infiltrate our Idaho firewall. Just not here, but publicly as well

    Expose any Democraps !!!!
