Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls both chambers of Idaho’s state legislature. Idaho is one of 23 states with a Republican trifecta.

Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?

Roberts:

“Freedom of Personal Choice and Bodily Autonomy”

“Funding of Idaho’s Public Education to build a better future.”

“Address Property Taxes and Affordable Housing.”

Stevens:

“Eliminate grocery tax and dramatically reform or eliminate property tax.”

“Allow school choice where school funding follows children to the school of their parents choice. This is the only way to eliminate radical indoctrination from our schools.”

“Unconstitutional mandates and lockdowns must be banned and those who supported them should be pushed out of office at the ballot box.”
