Several candidates have filed paperwork to run for governor.
While Governor Brad Little (R) has not officially announced he is running again, he has an active C1 on file with the Secretary of State’s office and is expected to run again. Currently, eight candidates have C1’s filed that could run against Little in the Republican primary.
One of the candidates who filed to run against Little is Eagle resident Ed Humphreys.
Humphreys has launched his campaign last month and recently reported that he had raised over $100K until this point. Humphreys is one of the more visible candidates running to be the Republican gubernatorial nominee, along with current Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin.
Idaho Dispatch sat down with Humphreys to do an in-depth interview on a variety of topics.
Some of the topics covered in this interview are the 2nd Amendment, abortion, health care, education, and public lands. Additionally, Idaho Dispatch talked to Humphreys about why he is running and about concerns some citizens have about his age.
Humphrey’s campaign kickoff weeks ago had approximately 500 people, according to his campaign.
When Idaho Dispatch interviewed Humphreys, he was at a fundraiser with approximately 70 people in attendance. Humphreys also said that they raised approximately $18K at the fundraiser where Idaho Dispatch interviewed him.
Below is the video interview with Humphreys recorded on June 12 (article continues below):
Note: Idaho Dispatch does everything we can to interview all candidates for the major political offices, regardless of party or whether or not many of our readers like or do not like a candidate.
While some news outlets ultimately endorse a candidate for office, the Idaho Dispatch does NOT endorse candidates.
Idaho Dispatch also does not put out editorials from our board members encouraging people to support one candidate or to attack another candidate. It is our belief that it is not the media’s job to try and get citizens to believe in one direction or another on an issue or to use our platform to influence elections.
