Every year the Republican Liberty Caucus, the conscience of the Republican Party, makes endorsements and recommendations after spending considerable time vetting candidates based on voting records, candidate questionnaire answers, and previous experience working with other RLC endorsed elected officials. These endorsements cover legislative, state constitutional offices, and recommendations for national Congressional candidates.
The Republican Liberty Caucus looks for candidates who best champion the 3 core concepts of limited government, free enterprise, and personal liberty and responsibility. These are concepts that the Constitution of the United States and the Idaho Republican Party platform espouse. Candidates are sent a detailed questionnaire with 57 questions that cover multiple topics from abortion to public lands. Candidates are asked questions which reveal both their worldview regarding governance as well as specific policy questions. It has been our pleasure to send this questionnaire to many candidates this year and we have received responses from many candidates.
The Idaho RLC makes the following endorsements for state and local offices through the RLCID-PAC, and makes recommendations to the national RLCUSA-PAC for congressional candidates for the following candidates.
