Idaho Republican delegation to stop in Preston Oct. 25

October 9, 2018

The Idaho Republican Party will be in Preston on Thursday, October 25, from 1:20 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. at Lewiston State Bank’s new branch on State Street. The visit is part of the party’s pre-Election Day statewide bus tour.

All the statewide GOP candidates will be on board for part or all of the bus tour. Local candidates will join up with parts of the tour as well. The bus tour stops are open to the public and the media.

Among them will be Brandon Woolf, Idaho State Controller and native of Franklin County.

“I’m really excited about being home and hope to see so many friends and neighbors at the event. In particular I’m looking forward to bringing my friend and Idaho’s next Governor Brad Little with us,” he said.

“Idaho voters like to see their candidates up close,” said Lt. Gov. Brad Little, the Republican candidate for governor. “We’ve all been traveling across Idaho throughout this campaign, and now we want to give voters another opportunity to hear our message and our vision for leading Idaho into the future - on jobs, education, health care and all the issues that matter to voters.”

“This is about showing the people that a vote for Republicans is a vote for Idaho values,” said Congressional District 1 candidate Russ Fulcher. “Voters are concerned about limited and responsible government, fiscal responsibility, jobs and the economy, protecting our constitutional rights, and respect for life and family values. We want the people to know that as their elected leaders we’ll always have their backs.”

“In order to represent your constituents, you must be in touch with them to hear their concerns,” said District 2 Congressman Mike Simpson, who’s running for re-election. “The same goes for campaigning. It’s our job to take our message to the voters. We’re going to make sure that in the final days of the campaign we listen to as many Idahoans as possible.”

The tour will head to Malad after its stop in Preston.
