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. At least nine candidates have C1’s filed that could run against Little in the Republican primary.
One of the candidates who filed to run is current Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin.
Some of the topics covered in this interview are the 2nd Amendment, abortion, education, and fires. Additionally, Idaho Dispatch talked to McGeachin about the Idaho Press Club lawsuit.
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. We believe that it is not the media’s job to try and get citizens to think in one direction or another on an issue or to use our platform to influence elections.
This interview took place at Hooligan’s Pub, which is owned by my brother but was used as a location to do the interview because both McGeachin and I were traveling, and it was the most accessible place for us to meet with little notice.
