Idaho results for every midterm race
Republican Gov. Butch Otter, who was first elected in 2006, decided not to seek a fourth term, leaving Idaho’s governor’s seat open.
If Democrats defy all odds, and Paulette Jordan, a 38-year-old progressive from a long line of Coeur d’Alene tribal chiefs, wins, the party will be sending the United States’ first Native American governor to Boise.
That said, Idaho is often considered a one-party state dominated by conservative rural and suburban districts, putting Republican Lt. Gov. Brad Little, the state Republican establishment’s pick, in a better position to claim the night. A majority of residents think Idaho is heading in the right direction with Republican leadership. But given Idaho’s expanding new tech sector and a booming population, they will have to address the growing pains that come with that.
The entire Idaho statehouse is on the ballot this year, as both the state Senate and the state House of Representatives both serve two-year terms. Republicans hold large majorities in both.
Trump remains popular here, enjoying a more than 50 percent approval rating, according to Morning Consult.
