Book By Former Idaho Governor Aide Traces Change In GOP Politics To 1980
Marc Johnson was a longtime aide to Idaho Democratic Governor Cecil Andrus. More recently, he’s spent his time researching and writing about political history in Idaho and beyond. His latest book is called “Tuesday Night Massacre: Four Senate Elections and the Radicalization of the Republican Party."
Johnson spoke with Reader's Corner host Bob Kustra earlier this month. Kustra began by asking Johnson why he chose to focus on these four senate races in 1980, and what lessons we can apply from them today.
