A Message from Bob

I have announced my intentions to seek the Republican Party nomination for Idaho Lieutenant Governor. The paperwork was filed on October 10th. The primary election will be held on May 15, 2018.

The strong support and encouragement I have been receiving from around the State has made my decision an easy one. With current Lt. Governor Little running for Governor, Idaho needs a candidate with strong Idaho roots and elected Republican experience.

I am starting my 14th year of service in the Idaho Legislature; 8 years in the House of Representatives and 6 years in the Senate. During my 8 years in the House of Representatives I was the Chairman of the Education Committee for 6 years. I have continued serving on the Education Committee in the Senate. I am also the Vice-Chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, and have served as the Vice-Chairman of the Senate Judiciary and Rules Committee.

I want to be Idaho’s next Lieutenant Governor to focus on education, economic development and affordable quality health care. I feel that this is the best way I can do more for Idaho. My 25 plus years of active and successful involvement in the Idaho Republican Party and in the Idaho legislature separates me from any challengers in the race. I am well known as one of the most conservative and effective legislators in Idaho. I will be running on my-proven track record and vast experience with the Republican Party.

I am an Idaho native. I was born and raised in Wallace, Idaho and have resided in the Coeur d’Alene area for last 35 years. I have owned a successful insurance business for the last 30 years. My wife Cathyanne is a concert violinist and teacher, as well as a licensed CPA (not practicing accounting at this time).
