Idaho Legislature: Post-Election Wrap-Up

Nov 10, 2016

All of Idaho’s legislative seats were up for grabs in Tuesday's election. The Legislature already leans heavily Republican and after votes were counted, it became even more so.

A handful of Democratic seats turned Republican. In some of those, long-time Democratic incumbents lost their seats. Other, formerly Democratic seats that were open, turned GOP.

We checked in with legislative expert and Boise State University Political Scientist and Professor Emeritus Gary Moncrief before the election to look at the lay of the land in the Legislative races. And we spoke with Moncrief Wednesday for an update.

He says the Democrats in the Legislature will have a harder time moving forward with their ideas and policies.
