One gubernatorial race that isn't being talked about enough is the race in Idaho.
Ammon Bundy is one of the candidates who is running for governor and it would be a great thing for the state of Idaho if he were to win the election.
You may remember the Bundy family as the group who fought against the government and held them off with guns until they backed down. Sadly, he was among the people who were shot at by the police which led to the death of LaVoy Finicum.
But now he's running as an Independent and is making some big promises.
“Idaho liberals say that if I’m elected as governor, they will leave the state,” Bundy begins in the new ad. “Well, I’m here to tell you that when I’m elected governor, Idaho will help pay for their moving costs — after all, it’s cheaper than keeping them here.”
Bundy continued, “Idaho spends nearly 40 percent of our annual budget on welfare programs. That’s almost four billion of your tax dollars going up in smoke every year.”
“As governor, we will be getting rid of property tax, income tax, and your grocery tax,” Bundy said.
“Idaho isn’t California, and if liberals have a problem with that, then we will help them move there,” Bundy continued.
Bundy concluded the ad by saying, “no one is saying you have to leave, but if you’re going to stay here, you have to work like the rest of us.”
Bundy said in his press release, "As governor, I will diminish the socialist welfare programs of the state of Idaho and push the responsibility of charitable services back to the local community, churches, and family, where it belongs. Liberals who want to live in Idaho will need to provide for themselves or leave the state to get welfare somewhere else. Allowing the left to live off the fruits of tax paying Idahoans while they diminish our values makes no logical sense, unless the goal is to destroy Idaho."
