By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Democratic Governor candidate Paulette Jordan made an appearance at Canyon Crest Sunday night, as part of her last tour of the state before the election.

Dozens of people came out to take part in a meet and greet, as well as ask questions.

Jordan touched on topics such as gun control, LGBTQ rights, sex education, and medical marijuana.

KMVT talked with two supporters about what just why they came out.

"It's exciting to see a woman take the first step in Idaho politics,” stated Madi Mason.

Supporter Sara Ajeti said she’s ready to vote.

“I love Paulette Jordan, I'm excited to vote for her on Tuesday, and it's just great that she's campaigning all around Idaho, and that we get to be a part of it,”Ajeti stated.

Jordan sat down with KMVT after the event and answered a couple of questions.

When asked about the sign on Blue Lakes stating she is anti-gun, she re-stated her stance on the topic.

"I know that there was a debate that was skewed, and I'd like to remind people that, my relatives own semi-automatic assault rifles, and that's not an issue for me, of course because again, I support gun autonomy, I find it is our Idaho way, many of our gun owners are very responsible."

Jordan was also asked why people should vote for her, over her opponents.

"Over this last year, people already know. They know I’m going to be loyal to the voice of the people, they know I’m of the people. I'm not a wealthy millionaire, I’m actually soliciting to the concerns and I will uphold their concerns by building solutions, as we already are."

Jordan continued, “we have white papers in place, we already have a plan, a plan for the next 4 years, and it will actually be beneficial for both sides of the isle. We're already looking to building an administration that is made up of both Democrats and Republicans here in the state of Idaho, and instead of being about a single party majority system, which my opponent is about, we want to ensure that both sides are incorporated into solution buildings as we move forward,” Jordan said.

Jordan also explained that she’s against Prop One and is voting for Prop Two.
