The conservative organization declared in the email that “Idaho is in good hands! These individuals have committed to upholding our shared values and will be held accountable to their constituents if they fail to do so.”

The Citizens Alliance of Idaho noted that State Representative Julie Yamamoto was the only pledge signer in bad standing with the pledge that lost her primary race. The grassroots conservative organization commented on Yamamoto’s defeat, declaring “Compromising our shared values has consequences, and we are committed to holding our representatives to the highest standards.”

On top of that, Senator Ben Adams and Representative Lance Clow, who are both pledge signers in questionable standing, ended up winning their primary races. The Citizens Alliance of Idaho stated that it hopes Adams and Clow “will diligently work to uphold the commitments they made to their constituents in the next legislative session by working closer with their colleagues in Good Standing.”

The grassroots organization promised to continue working in the state legislature to hold politicians accountable for their legislative behavior.
