Another legislator has announced a run for Lt. Governor.
Speaker Scott Bedke announced on the capitol steps this morning that he will also run for the spot of Lt. Governor. He makes the third candidate to enter the race after current Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin announced she was running for governor in 2022.
Approximately 150 people attended the event, including some protesters who were also in attendance. Many of the protesters held signs in support of Rep. Priscilla Giddings who is also running for Lt. Governor.
Former Idaho Governor Butch Otter introduced Bedke at the announcement.
Here is Bedke’s announcement (we missed some in the beginning because of technical difficulties):
Bedke becomes the third name to throw his hat into the ring with the aforementioned Giddings as well as former state representative Luke Malek who was the first of the three to enter the race.
Who do you support for Lt. Governor of the names that have announced so far?
