WINNING “Divided WE Fall (Fail) — United We STAND”

Six weeks ago, I proposed a remedy to the problem that conservatives have in this year’s Republican Governor’s primary. Just like 3 years ago our incumbent Governor will win the primary with less than 40% of the vote.

Cronyism Cartelism, and Corruption

Conservatives running in Statewide and local races in Idaho are doing a very poor job of connecting with moderates—not all moderates are RINOs, when it comes to defining the penultimate issues that are important to everyday working men and women and their families they need to connect.

Those who vote versus The Special Interests

Op-Ed: The Unexpected Candidate

When it comes to Idaho politics, I’m not a household name. That’s because before July 15, 2021, I wasn’t sure that I’d actually run for office.
