Herndon issues release on Senate win

May 18, 2022

Scott Herndon shocked the Idaho political establishment last night by defeating two-term incumbent Senator Jim Woodward in Idaho’s First senate district. Herndon won decisively by double digits: 56-percent to 44-percent. Herndon’s campaign ran a data-driven operation, drawing a stark contrast between his conservative political views and Woodward’s voting record. Herndon’s political strategist Woodrow Johnston said.

“North Idaho has sent a message to the political establishment that North Idaho deserves to be represented by a voice that truly represents the people’s interests," he said. "In addition, the effort of this campaign, backed by countless patriots on the ground, has provided a model for more conservative victories all across Idaho.”

“First things first," Herndon said. "All the glory belongs to God. I am humbled to have been chosen by the people of North Idaho to represent them. I want to thank Jim Woodward for his service to Idaho. While I had serious disagreements with him on policy and his voting record, I never doubted his commitment to public service. To those who voted for me, I am honored to have earned your vote. To those who didn’t, I hope you will give me the opportunity to listen to your concerns and represent you in Boise.”
