TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Gov. Brad Little reacted to news that Lieutenant Governor Janice McGeachin announced her bid to unseat him as governor. This, while he visited the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls.

Little, himself, said he is not planning to announce whether he will run for re-election anytime soon.

As names as rapidly being thrown into the Idaho Gubernatorial election hat, Governor Brad Little spoke about the nature of contested elections, and how he feels about Lieutenant Governor Janice McGeachin — a businesswoman from Idaho Falls — announcing she is running for the position.

“We always have, almost always have had contested races, particularly for governor,” said Little. “We’ve got a lot of Republicans in Idaho and there’s quite a divergence out there, so that’s to be expected.”

Lt. Governor McGeachin served in the Idaho House of Representatives from 2002 to 2012.

She has been critical of Governor Little, particularly involving his Coronavirus pandemic restrictions.
