Trump endorses GOP rival of Idaho incumbent governor


Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Former President Donald Trump has endorsed Republican Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin over incumbent Republican Gov. Brad Little in the 2022 race for governor. Trump made the endorsement late Tuesday through his political action committee following visits from Little and McGeachin last week to his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump won heavily conservative Idaho in the 2020 presidential election with nearly 64% of the vote. Trump in his endorsement says McGeachin has been a true supporter and will make a fantastic governor. Little responded to the endorsement on Wednesday by saying he’s made Idaho the least regulated state in the country while maintaining a strong economy.
