The Idaho Republican Party welcomes Senator Rand Paul to Idaho. The Idaho Republican Party does not endorse primary candidates, but will announce the visit of any declared Republican presidential candidate as a service to the public and Republican voters in Idaho. The Idaho Republican Party continues to coordinate with all Republican presidential candidates, encouraging as many as possible to engage Idaho primary voters.

Dear Fellow Republican,

The The Idaho Republican Party is preparing to gear up for the 2015 Summer Meeting as we continue to prepare for victory in 2016.

Following the direction of the Resolutions that were passed at the Winter Meeting, we continue to work closely with Republican members of the Legislature on issues that are important to Idaho Republicans.

We are pleased to announce that the 2015 Idaho Republican Summer Meeting will be taking place in Idaho Falls at the Shilo Inn on June 5th & 6th 2015. We will be announcing further details as we get closer to the meeting.

We aim to make the Summer Meeting a large and meaningful event; filled with training sessions, meetings, our normal business, and lastly several large events that will be keynoted by national figures. The Summer Meeting will culminate in a "Faith and Family" dinner/forum on Saturday evening. We have invited many prominent national figures, including Presidential aspirants, to come and we are working on following up with several who have expressed interest in participating. With that, plan on the Summer Meeting lasting the whole day Friday and Saturday.

2015 is a year of preparing, training, and raising the necessary resources to build a strong foundation for victory in 2016. Our efforts for 2016 aim to win more local races for Republicans, expand our grassroots base, and position Idaho to be a meaningful player in electing a Republican President in 2016.

To do this, we continue to build a strong State Party that: welcomes and gives voice to all Republicans; bridges grassroots and governance priorities, where we work with our elected leaders and our elected leaders are responsive to the party; restores its financial health; applies simple, clear, and well trained rules evenly to all; has our values and platform advanced in positive and successful ways.

With your continued support, we will be able to accomplish these goals. By working together, we can and will expand the Republican cause in Idaho and take back the White House in 2016.

As I mentioned at the Winter Meeting, our Monthly Donor Clubs (the Grassroots Club $9/month and the Ivory 500 Club $42/month) are vital components to restoring the financial health of the State Party. These rewarding clubs are an easy method for everyone to invest in the party in a meaningful way. If every officer within the Party, from Precinct committeeman on up, would participate in just the Grassroots Club, the State Party would never have to raise another dime to cover the operating expenses of the Party. Please consider joining one of our Monthly Donor Clubs and keep the Idaho Republican Party a truly grassroots-fed party of the people, by the people, and for the people. I sincerely thank the many State Central Committee members who already have joined since the Winter Meeting.

Please join me in this endeavor of building up our Idaho GOP and preparing in 2015 for Victory in 2016 as we continue to keep Idaho among the reddest of red states and putting conservative principles into action.

With the Lincoln Day circuit already underway, I look forward to visiting with you at these great events and receiving your feedback on any way we can improve. If you have any feedback, whether it be about the Summer Meeting or on how we did at the winter meeting, please let us know.
.


God Bless,



Steve Yates

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE IDAHO REPUBLICAN PARTY 

The Idaho Republican Party announced today that it has notified the Secretary of State that it will use the Early Presidential Primary that will take place in March to select Idaho Republican's choice for the Republican Presidential nominee.

Idaho GOP Chairman Steve Yates stated, "This move will give Idaho greater influence in the presidential election process and allow more Idahoans to participate."

"It's a great time to be a Republican; we have many outstanding candidates for president. Republican voters can now go and cast their vote for who they would like to see as the Republican nominee using the primary election system that our Secretary of State and County Clerks do an excellent job of administering."

Chairman Yates continued saying, "We made this move to increase participation and empower Idahoans--especially our military, first responders, and Idaho families."

The Early Presidential Primary will take place on March 8th, 2016. Republican voters may participate by heading to their polling location and cast their ballot. Early voting and absentee voting will also be available. All other federal, statewide, and local primary election races will still take place in the regular primary on May 17th.

The deadline for filing was December 9, 2016 at 5 PM.

The following Republican candidates will appear on the 2016 Presidential Primary Ballot:

  • Jeb Bush
  • Ben Carson
  • Chris Christie
  • Ted Cruz
  • Carly Fiorina
  • Lindsey Graham
  • Mike Huckabee
  • John R. Kasich
  • Peter Messina
  • Rand Paul
  • Marco Rubio
  • Rick Santorum
  • Donald J. Trump

"It's a great time to be a Republican, we have many good quality candidates for Idaho Republican voters to choose from," said Idaho GOP Executive Director David Johnston. "While Republican candidates come from all walks of life and bring unique ideas to the table, the Democrats have scandal-ridden Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders as their choices."

The Presidential Primary Election will take place on March 8th, 2016. Republican voters may participate by heading to their polling location and cast their ballot. Early voting and absentee voting will also be available. All other federal, statewide, and local primary election races will still take place in the regular primary on May 17th.


December 9, 2015

13 Republican candidates have officially filed to participate in the Presidential Primary Election.

Chairman Yates' Statement on Trump's Presumptive Nomination

May 5, 2016


Donald Trump is, for all intents and purposes, the presumptive Republican Nominee. The Idaho Republican Party would like to congratulate Mr. Trump on this pivotal moment, and welcome him as our presumptive nominee. We would also like to thank all the other campaigns for a well fought race, especially Senator Cruz who came to Idaho, campaigned vigorously, and with record voter turnout in our presidential primary, won Idaho. We fully support Mr. Trump as our nominee and now is the time for Republicans to unite and focus on defeating Hillary Clinton. America cannot survive another four years like the last eight, and a strong, unified party behind our nominee is critical to ensuring that Republicans win the White House and all other down ticket races. #NeverHillary

continue reading...

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. He will be remembered as one of our country's greatest defenders of the Constitution. The loss of Justice Scalia is greater than 1 seat among 9. His shoes cannot adequately be filled, and shouldn't be by a lame duck liberal nominee. The stakes in 2016 could not be higher. Your vote counts.
