TYT: Progressive Paulette Jordan Wins Idaho Democratic Primary

Time Length: 5:57


"Paulette Jordan is trying to make history in Idaho.

On Tuesday, she won the Democratic nomination in Idaho’s governor’s
race, forwarding her long-shot goal of becoming the United States’ first
Native American governor. A two-term state lawmaker of the Coeur d’Alene
tribe, Jordan beat out A.J. Balukoff in a competitive primary Tuesday
night, a race that became something of a familiar
establishment-versus-newcomer Democratic Party fight.

She will be up against Republican Lt. Gov. Brad Little in November.

Idaho is unquestionably conservative, so much so that it is often
considered to be a one-party state. That said, Jordan, at 38 years old,
represents a young, fresh face for the state’s Democratic Party,
compared to Balukoff, a 72-year-old former school board member.”

* Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola
