Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to 2022. We have finally reached the point where the legislature will be back in session and the much anticipated Idaho Republican Party Primary. The most talked-about contest is the race for the Republican nomination for governor. Four years ago, there was an open seat and three high-profile candidates.

We have several folks running for Idaho's highest office four years later except the current incumbent  Governor Brad Little. He has yet to declare his intention for reelection but has started to raise money and hire campaign staff. The governor is expected to run for a second term and will have several advantages such as money, organization, and the power of incumbency.
