The Fight to Save our Republic is a Road Show

Since I started my time as chairwoman of the Idaho Republican Party, I’ve put a lot of miles on my rig. I’ve crisscrossed the state to attend Lincoln Days, county GOP meetings, and community events.  I’ve also had the opportunity to travel out-of-state for Republican National Committee events. Just last week, I traveled to Oklahoma […]

In July of 2022, the Republican Party gathered in Twin Falls for our summer convention to elect new leadership of the party.

Do Not Let Violence Become the Norm: Make HB71 Idaho Law

Violent activists entered the capitol building — vandalizing public facilities, threatening legislators, assaulting law enforcement, and interrupting official proceedings. Some readers might be thinking of January 6, 2021. But the sentence above actually describes events that took place this week, at the statehouse in Nashville, Tennessee.  Radical leftists, some wearing satanic garb, stormed the Tennessee […]

Idaho is Building a Culture of Life

National news outlets have recently taken an interest in Idaho’s prohibition on elective abortions. It’s not surprising, but it is further proof that the radicalization of our state is being coordinated by far-away organizations and out-of-state money.

Idahoans won’t be ignored about Common Core

Common Core is exactly what we thought it was. Try telling that to the Idaho State Board of Education, though. The board’s members won’t hear you. Idaho adopted Common Core standards earlier this decade in hopes that the latest federal education package would solve what ails Idaho schools. It hasn’t. Achievement, as measured through test […]
