Janice McGeachin was among the first Republicans in Idaho to support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016. I remember she was among the first because at the time she asked me why I wasn’t. not on board. I was late for the party! Then, happily, I found the Trump years in the White House among the best of my life.
McGeachin was a Trump delegate at the 2016 GOP convention in Cleveland. It was just as she began to think about her own campaign for Lieutenant Governor.
McGeachin was a Trump delegate at the 2016 GOP convention in Cleveland. It was just as she began to think about her own campaign for Lieutenant Governor. Now that she’s running for governor, she may be seeking reciprocal approval from Mr. Trump. She visited the former president at his Florida home this week. As she explains in the video above.
McGeachin looking for approval
There is no approval at this time.
While still in the White House, Trump greeted Governor Brad Little in the cabinet room. The president, who likes to reduce government regulations, praised Little for doing the same.
Trump has embarked on several primary battles across the country, but may well stay away from Idaho. Approval would obviously come after the day of the primary for the Republican candidate for governor.
Many riders could be on the way
Meanwhile, Ed Humphreys, another of the many Republicans seeking the nomination, tells me he would like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ approval.
Will Youngkin go into the approval game
Another important name Republicans can court is Glenn Youngkin. Virginia’s new governor wasn’t even a household name in his own state last spring. Now he is a legend within his own party and across the political spectrum.
We may see many of these people come through Idaho next spring.
