Who gets to run on Republican ticket?

A push from a handful of Idaho GOP members could implement changes that would determine who can run on the Republican ticket.

The proposed rule change would require those running as Republicans to obtain endorsements by their respective GOP committees.

For statewide and United States’ offices, candidates would need approval from the State Central Committee, while local candidates would need an endorsement from their local GOP party.

Currently, anyone eligible to run for office who is also a member of the Republican Party can run on the GOP ticket.

Bonneville County GOP Party State Committeeman Doyle Beck said in a written statement to EastIdahoNews.com, the rule change is needed because the Democrats have vowed to openly continue infiltrating the party so as to elect the most Democratic candidates as the party nominees.

Beck will present the proposed rule change at this weekend’s Idaho GOP State Central Committee Winter Meeting in Boise for consideration and possible acceptance.
