STATEMENT: IDP Chair Responds to David J. Reilly Write-In Campaign for Governor

David J. Reilly, a far-right extremist with an extensive record of antisemtic, racist, homophobic, and misogynistic statements, has filed to run as a Democratic write-in candidate for governor according to the office of the Idaho Secretary of State. In response, IDP Chair Lauren Necochea released the following statement: 

“David J. Reilly, and the hateful beliefs he has espoused for years, have no place in our great state much less the Idaho Democratic Party. Idaho Democrats fight for fairness and opportunity for ALL Idahoans. David Reilly, his words, and actions contradict all the values we hold dear. Reilly, who has previously been endorsed by the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee, receives the exact opposite from us  – a disavowment. I’m confident that Democrats will show Reilly just how unwelcome he is on May 17, when he will once again lose at the ballot box.”
