BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho has swung for Republican presidential candidates for more than four decades, but voters will still have plenty of options for those who don’t want to pick either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton come November.
In all, there will be eight candidates seeking the country’s highest political office on the Idaho ballot. Those include Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson, known for his advocacy work to legalize marijuana, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, a medical doctor who ran against Mitt Romney in the 2002 race for governor of Massachusetts.
Darrell Castle is the national Constitution Party’s nominee, but he’ll appear as an independent on the Idaho ballot. This year, Idaho’s small Constitution Party selected Rev. Scott Copeland of Texas to be their nominee in this year’s first-ever Constitution Party presidential primary for Idaho.
