This is the first time that any party other than the Democratic or Republican Parties has had a contested gubernatorial primary in Idaho. 

“The upcoming primary will allow libertarians to challenge or affirm their principles.” stated the party Chair, Jennifer Imhoff “Your vote is an endorsement. And I’m encouraged to see Libertarians affirm the values they want to see at the highest level in Idaho.”

The Libertarian Party of Idaho exists to promote individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government in the state of Idaho and its 44 counties.  Our vision is elected and appointed government officials throughout Idaho who prioritize Life, Liberty, Property, and Happiness, as defined by the individual, instead of special interests and partisanship.
