  • Why the Idaho Statesman endorses political candidates

    The Idaho Statesman’s seven-member Editorial Board writes editorial opinions and endorses candidates for public office.

Idaho Statesman President and Publisher Debra Leithauser explains the process and the reasoning behind endorsements.
