IDAHO GOVERNOR-NATIVE AMERICAN CANDIDATE
BOISE — Democrat Paulette Jordan breaks the mold of the typical Idaho candidate. She’s the first woman to win her party’s nomination for governor of a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to the top seat in almost 30 years. And if she pulls off the upset against Lt. Gov. Brad Little in November, Jordan, a member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, will be the first Native American governor of a U.S. state. SENT: 968 words.
