Extremist branch of the Idaho GOP tightens its grip on power

“The extremist branch of Idaho’s Republican Party has been engaged in a purge of all those who are considered suspect by the (Dorothy) Moon Crowd and their dogmatic predecessors ever since the GOP closed its primary in 2012. As white nationalist Vincent James Foxx declared last year, a “real right-wing takeover is happening in Idaho and there’s nothing they can do to stop it.” Or, is there actually something Idahoans can do to stop the extremist takeover?” Jim Jones Bonner County Daily Bee, July 20, 2023

We’re dedicated to the belief that we can. WE CAN elect qualified candidates. With qualified leadership, we can address the challenging issues confronting North Idaho: jobs, education, and growth.

We’re determined to make a difference. Our tasks are serious but we will keep a sense of humor. To help us, we have recruited Timber the wonder dog. She considers herself the best doggone political pundit going — but she doesn’t mind taking a break from serious stuff to play ball. We’ll use her as our inspiration to do the same during the coming elections.
