Endorsements

Kootenai County Democrats

On April 27, the Kootenai County Democratic party voted to endorse write-in candidate Shelby Rognstad for Governor in the Idaho Democratic Primary. Mayor Shelby has proven to be a strong and effective leader in North Idaho and the KCDEMS are confident he will lead the entire state of Idaho away from extremism and get back to taking on meaningful policy that will move the needle for Idaho families.

Latah County Democrats

At the April monthly Central Committee Meeting, the Latah County Democratic party voted to endorse write-in candidate Shelby Rognstad for Governor in the Idaho Democratic Primary. It is unusual for the state or local parties to endorse candidates for the primary election. Our decision recognizes the fact that Shelby Rognstad, two-term Mayor of Sandpoint, is the only candidate who has actively campaigned, fundraised, and put in consistent effort to get elected.

I had the privilege of working with Shelby Rognstad this winter with the Resort Cities Coalition, a first time attempt to increase the voice of our resort cities across the state at the legislature.  Shelby is a Mayor, a member of the Association of Idaho Cites Executive Committee:  eager, bright and energetic, with leadership experience.  He cares about Idaho.  I believe in a two party system that creates a robust dialogue about our kitchen table issues. Please write in Shelby Rognstad, don’t forget the “n”, for Governor on the Democratic ballot.  Democrats will need a strong voice in November.  Vote now, absentee, or on May 17.
