Idaho primary: Conservation group backs four Boise Democrats for Legislature

Conservation Voters for Idaho today announced four endorsements in Boise-area legislative races — and backed two candidates with contested primaries Tuesday.

The group's choices were:

• Betty Richardson, Democrat, for District 15 Senate.

• Richard Keller, Democrat, for District 15 House Seat A. Keller faces John Hart in Tuesday's primary.

• Steve Berch, Democrat, for District 15 House Seat B.

• Hy Kloc, Democrat, for District 16 House Seat B. Kloc faces Davide "Pappy" Honey in Tuesday's primary.

“These candidates are united by their strong support for common-sense conservation policies,” said CVI executive director John T. Reuter.

CVI had previously endorsed Mat Erpelding and Holli High Woodings in contested Democratic primaries in Boise's District 19.

Here's a link to the group's endorsements statewide.

Five districts starting with District 8, and ending with District 19 in Boise does not constitute "state wide". Could not find any other endorsements.
