The full slate of Republican candidates for state and national offices are hitting North Idaho this week as a part of the 2018 Republican Bus Tour.

From 1:15-2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, at the Ponderay Events Center, voters can learn about the candidates’ positions and make a more informed choice on Nov. 6. The bus tour then moves on to Priest River, where candidates will gather at the Airport hangar from 4:45-5:15 p.m. Both events will include refreshments, and the Oak Street Connection will play music at the Ponderay event from 12:30-2 p.m. 

The full roster of candidates includes Russ Fulcher for U.S. representative, Brad Little for governor, Janice McGeachin for lieutenant governor, Lawerence Denney for secretary of state, Brandon Woolf for state controller, Lawrence Wasden for attorney general, Jullie Ellsworth for state treasurer and Sherri Ybarra for superintendent of public instruction.
