Idaho GOP rejects endorsement requirement proposal

January 7, 2022

The Rules Committee of the Idaho Republican Party voted unanimously to defeat a proposed rule change that would have modified the primary process by requiring Republican candidates for Federal, State, Legislative, or County offices to first receive an endorsement from their State, Legislative or County Committee, respectively, chairman Tom Luna wrote in a release today.

After intense coverage from members of the media and passionate debate from members of the Standing Rules Committee, the proposed rule was defeated unanimously. Although, many members acknowledged the legitimacy of concerns regarding unaffiliated candidates and voters disingenuously interfering in the affairs of the Idaho Republican Party, ultimately, the committee concluded that the proposed rule change was too restrictive of a solution.

The Idaho Republican Party today reaffirmed its fundamental commitment to the principle that the selection of Republican nominees is best left to the wisdom of Republican voters.
