Published December 10, 2017

MOSCOW, IDAHO – Paulette Jordan, a tribal citizen of the Coeur D’Alene tribe, announced she is running for governor of Idaho in the 2018 election. Jordan, who is now serving her second term as a state representative, announced she is running for the state’s top office on Thursday. Jordan turned 38-years-old on the same day.

“When you are raised by Idaho, it’s a matter of giving back,” she said. “And I look down at the heart of it all and thought, ‘If I am raised by Idaho and I know Idaho and I suffer with Idaho,’ taking on the governorship would be the best way for me to impact people’s lives, the best way to serve and give back.”

Jordan, a Democrat, faces a large crowd of a dozen running for the party’s nomination.

A graduate of the University of Washington, Jordan would be the first American Indian ever of any state in the United States and the first woman governor of Idaho.
