Idaho Becomes More Red As COVID-19 Politics Plays A Role In Down Ballot Races

Emilie Ritter Saunders
Boise State Public Radio

While the country continues to hold its breath for the presidential election results, on the state and local level we have a clear picture of where Idaho is headed. From federal offices to state legislative races, consequential local elections and record-breaking turnout, there’s a lot to dissect over the next several days.

Joining Idaho Matters now to help us understand some of these election results are Boise State University political scientists Jaclyn Kettler and Jeff Lyons, along with Boise State Public Radio News reporters James Dawson and Heath Druzin.
As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
