Rose running for Idaho Senate District 1

Dan RoseDan Rose announced today the launch of an Independent candidacy for the position of State Senate, Legislative District 1.

I’m running for Idaho State Senate to represent the people of North Idaho, not the Boise bureaucrat interests. “I have a proven record of public service and integrity in promoting conservative principles to LD1.” I have a wonderful wife, Kathy, whose liberty and conservative principles underpin her nine years of quiet BCRWI and BCRCC community service, which is a value added conservative support condition that neither Woodward, nor Johnson can claim.

Rose recognizes the condition of not wanting to split the republican vote three ways in the primary election, writing, “I intentionally decided to run a campaign as an independent candidate to avoid a primary vote splitting impact.”

The three way race in the general election is another entirely different circumstance.

Rose also recognizes the Democratic strategy being employed between the two Democrats in the LD1 Senate race. “Johnson is a self-admitted Democrat and Woodward had a distinctive and unimpressive senator voting record, on par with Democrat peers in his prior years of senate service.”

Rose calls on his Independent challenger, Johnson, to write publicly, that like Rose, he will not withdraw from the general election ballot, regardless of who is determined the “republican” primary winner.

“I have disfavor with both ‘Republican’ primary candidates which will be brought forward, at the appropriate time, after the primary election,” he wrote. “I’ve stated many times, the pain is not yet great enough.”

Rose believes changes will appear before North Idahoans in 2024. An international Central Bank Digital Currency system akin to economic slavery, multiple front wars, indirect U.S. support of Gazan genocide, a domestic border invasion, inflation, loss of medical sovereignty, election fraud, federal abuse of power against state and individual rights, and a loss of representational trust in elected officials, all weigh heavily on the required Fall of 2024 political discussions, if we are to preserve valued liberties and freedoms!

Rose’s elected and principled representation is proven.

“I have neither wavered to corrupt AG advice, nor been silenced by self-serving peers, lobby and/or PAC donations which might violate my elected trust, and the plain reading of the Idaho Constitution and subordinate statutes, where applicable.”
