[Vision2020] As goes Idaho, so goes the nation.

Shock and awe is all I can say this morning. I am really dismayed by this
election of someone whose words have spoken volumes about his feelings about
racial issues, criminal justice, immigration, international relations,
disabled people, religious liberty and women. What we must do now is to work
hard for real progressive outcomes that bring to the people of America what
we need and want in our lives.
Just a comment about the 2000 election: I was certainly affected by the
George Bush surge in electoral turnout, as the Democratic candidate for
Idaho's First District! Even so, I did rather better than the base
Democratic vote in Idaho which is about 25%. I can share with many of you a
nostalgic fondness for Shirley Ringo as our Representative...
So things change... Life goes on within you and with out you...

Depends on what you mean. Since doubt 1996, the highest % any
presidential candidate has gotten in Idaho is 36%. That was Obama in
2008 and that was not a predictor of national results.
In 2000, George Bush shocked us and turnout for him swamped many
legislative candidates, that seemed a lot like this year.
