The following Press Release was sent out by Ammon Bundy, an Independent candidate for Governor. Note: Press Releases sent out by candidates do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch.
Just days ago Ammon Bundy announced that he would not be entering the Republican primary but instead will run independent for Governor of Idaho. His goal is to unite Idahoans of all parties (if any) and cut off the establishment control that is destroying Idaho as we know it. We have full confidence that this goal can be obtained! In a short period of time we have gathered more than enough signatures needed to meet the requirement administered by the Idaho Secretary of State to run in the general election.
Therefore, we are pleased to officially announce that Ammon Bundy will be your choice for liberty as Governor on the ballot in November! Through the petition process, thousands of Idahoans have voiced their support for Ammon Bundy as Governor. As an independent candidate for Governor, Ammon Bundy will put forth the conservative Republican platform that the republican establishment in Idaho refuses to implement.
We are very grateful for the efforts of hundreds of Idahoans who chose on their own to gather signatures by the thousands. We are constantly amazed by your support!
