Twin Falls, ID, March 14, 2022: Paul Thompson announced today that he has filed his candidacy for Idaho State Senate – District 25, on the Constitution Party of Idaho ticket.

“As a voter, I have always looked to vote for someone who is consistent with their party platform and in alignment with my values. Obviously, that means I am often in conflict over who I might vote for; and from the age of 18, voting has been a priority for me. When there is a lack of accountability in any party there begins a shift. The shift of some candidates happens slowly and without notice, until everyone wakes up one day and wonders ‘how did we get here?’”
As a principled voter, Paul will strive to be an accountable senator.
“I want the voter to know that the person they elected to represent them at the statehouse will do so consistently and in line with what they told voters when asking for their support. That is the kind of people I look for when I’m voting and it is the kind of senator I want to be.”
Paul will continue as the senior preaching pastor of Eastside Baptist Church, as he has since June of 2001. Paul has been an active advocate on many issues that have given him an understanding of how the legislature functions.
Paul will strive to be principled in his representation and act with integrity to the people, while not usurping the constitution.
“If you want a limited government, then you will want someone like me in the Senate; but if you think an unlimited government is what you want then any of the others will do. If you value life from fertilization to natural death, without exception, choose me; but if you have no regard for your preborn neighbor then any of the others will do. If you want to make the decisions regarding your children’s education and what is best for them, then elect me; but if you want the government to decide this for you, any of the others will do. If you want your children and grandchildren to flourish while exercising personal responsibility then elect me to the Idaho State Senate; but if you want government bureaucrats to legislate unconstitutional mandates that violate your liberties then any of the others will do. If you want to be represented at the statehouse by someone who shares these values, then stop voting for the others and vote for me on November 8, 2022, for Idaho State Senate, District 25.“
Paul will aim to be known as a friend of the constitution.
