Citizens Alliance of Idaho PAC is proud to announce a major victory in the 2024 Primary Elections!

Our dedicated efforts to elect liberty-advancing legislators in the state have had a significant impact, as we successfully supported principled and viable candidates who share our commitment to Idaho values.

Inspired by the Idaho State Constitution and the U.S. Constitution, The Citizens Alliance of Idaho Pledge has guided a mission to promote transparency, fiscal responsibility, and individual liberty.

Through a comprehensive campaign that included knocking 103,263 doors, sending mailers, running digital ads, and delivering text messages, CAI PAC was able to effectively defend and support the following outstanding candidates.


Elaine Price – Rep. 4B

Kyle Harris – Rep. 7A

Brandon Shippy – Sen 9

Tammy Nichols – Sen 10

Lucas Cayler – Rep. 11B

Jaron Crane – Rep. 12B

Brian Lenney – Sen 13

Glenneda Zuiderveld – Sen. 24

Kent Marmon – Rep. 11A

Josh Keyser – Sen. 20

Christy Zito – Sen. 8

Cornel Rasor – Rep. 1B

Dan Foreman – Sen. 6

Carl Bjerke – Sen. 5

Faye Thompson – Rep. 8B

David Leavitt – Rep. 25B

Clint Hostetler – Rep. 24A

Josh Kohl – Sen. 25

Rob Beiswenger – Rep. 8A

These candidates emerged victorious on Primary Election Day, defeating their challengers and moving one step closer to ensuring that Idaho’s legislative body will be filled with representatives who are committed to advancing liberty and upholding our shared values.

In addition to supporting these liberty-advancing candidates, CAI PAC played a crucial role in removing many Bad Standing legislators from Boise who refuse to sign the Pledge and stand up for our shared values. 

  • Senator Chuck Winder (20) – The pro tempore and leader of the Senate. Successfully defeated by Josh Keyser

  • Representative Julie Yamamoto (11A) – House Education Committee Chairman and LAST remaining Pledge Signer in Bad Standing. – successfully defeated by Kent Marmon

  • Representative Megan Blanksma (8B)– Former Majority Leader. Successfully defeated by Faye Thompson

  • Senator Linda Wright Hartgen (25) – Senate Agricultural Affairs Committee Chairman – Successfully defeated by Josh Kohl. 

  • Representative Matt Bundy (8A) – House Commerce and Human Resources Vice-Chair – Successfully defeated by Rob Beiswenger. 

With this many folks in leadership losing their races, we can expect to see more opportunities for Good Standing Pledge signers to step in and work to lead Idaho in protecting our shared values. 

The May 21st Primary Election was a resounding success for Citizens Alliance of Idaho PAC. We are grateful to all our supporters and volunteers who helped make this achievement possible. Together, we have taken a significant step towards ensuring that Idaho remains a beacon of liberty and responsible governance.

Our work is far from finished. Citizens Alliance of Idaho PAC remains committed to ensuring that our endorsed candidates emerge victorious in the November elections. We will continue to be actively involved in supporting their campaigns, and we urge all our supporters to join us in this critical effort.

There are many ways to get involved, from volunteering for campaign activities to encouraging friends and family to get out and vote. Every action counts, and together, we can ensure that Idaho’s future is shaped by principled leaders who uphold our shared values.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our shared values and liberty. We look forward to working together to build a brighter future for Idaho. DONATE NOW TO HELP CONTINUE THE WINNING!

Riding together to November!
