Senate Republican Leadership Joins Forces with Democrats to Make Idaho Irrelevant in the Selection of Our Next President

For Immediate Release from the Idaho Freedom Caucus

The Idaho Senate Republican Caucus says they’ve reached 60% support for a special session on the presidential primary. However, it’s crucial to emphasize they achieved this number by relying on the unanimous support of every Senate Democrat. In other words, without the backing of the Democrats, they would have fallen significantly short of the required 60%. This situation has exposed noticeable divisions within the Senate Republican Caucus because they couldn’t secure sufficient support from their own members.

Establishment Republicans consistently partner with liberal Democrats to drive legislation in the Senate, a worrisome trend for Idaho conservatives. This troubling pattern doesn’t serve the interests of Idahoans, who expect their elected representatives to champion conservative values and principles and not do the bidding of the radical Democrats. It raises questions about the true motivations behind these legislative efforts and whether Senate leadership is working to serve their own interests or the interests of the people of Idaho.

Moving the primary to May will relegate Idaho to the sidelines of the presidential nominating process. History shows that candidates are almost certainly chosen before May, meaning our primary won’t have a say in shaping the party’s nominee.

The last time a May primary had any relevance was back in 1980.

By delaying the primary to May, Idaho becomes irrelevant, with candidates bypassing our state as they seek delegate support in earlier primaries. Idahoan’s voices will be silenced as they cast meaningless votes in a May presidential primary.

The IDFC urges the Idaho House of Representatives to weigh these concerns seriously when considering signing onto a special session to decide on a May presidential primary bill. Idaho’s relevance in the presidential nominating process should not be sacrificed for the sake of convenience or cost.

Senate Republican leadership, under Senate Pro Tempore Winder, is demanding Idaho taxpayers waste $30,000 a day on a special session for a decision the Idaho Republican Party has already made. The caucus will not cost Idaho taxpayers anything.

The Idaho Freedom Caucus supports the Republican Party’s plan for a March 2 Caucus, which will bring presidential candidates to Idaho and ensure Idahoans have a voice in the nomination of our next president.

I’ve been to a Caucus, and I’m a Christian Conservative. I vote my bible conscience. At the Caucus, at the time, the most popular candidate,
Newt Gingrich did not have any literature at this Caucus. All there was was information on the Rino backstabbing Mitt Romney. Only a handful of people decided for Romney. I want a primary so my voice is heard in our 4 deligate state. What matters is the people’s voices are heard.

Why won’t the Republicans allow we the people to vote on weather or not to have a primary or a Caucus??? At least we the people, Not just Dorothy Moon and democrats, will decide!!! Don’t get me wrong, but this is a move by Moon that seems the democrats are very interested in.

A trend in Idaho is for weak so called conservatives representatives being slowly replaced by democrats in part due to republicans voters feeling disenfranchised and not enthused to vote. After all, many republicans frustratingly vote like democrats on many spending and social issues. This trajectory isn’t going to end well. Just look at the failing States of WA and Oregon.

What was the reasoning for moving the date to May? Sounds like another democrat trick to edge their way into making more decisions for us. I don’t like the way Idaho is going with crazy woke people, trannies flaunting in front of our children, filthy books in the library, etc. I’ve lived in two failing BLUE states. The people’s voices need to be heard or our state will fall in ruin like New York, Chicago, California. Trust me, I’ve seen it.
