Episode 54: Idaho’s nationalized elections

We really are in the election homestretch. Primary elections are Tuesday.

This week’s podcast guest is Rod Gramer — the CEO of Idaho Business for Education, and a longtime observer of Idaho politics.

He talks about how these elections are different than what we’ve seen before: sometimes costlier, and driven by nationalized issues.
