INCUMBENT IDAHO SENATOR JIM WOODWARD DEFEATED BY CONSERVATIVE BUSINESSMAN SCOTT HERNDON
Sagle, Idaho — Scott Herndon shocked the Idaho political establishment Tuesday May 17, 2022 by defeating two-term incumbent Senator Jim Woodward in Idaho’s 1st senate district. Herndon won decisively by double digits: 56% to 44%.
Herndon’s campaign ran a data-driven operation, drawing a stark contrast between his conservative political views and Woodward’s voting record. Herndon’s political strategist Woodrow Johnston stated “North Idaho has sent a message to the political establishment that North Idaho deserves to be represented by a voice that truly represents the people’s interests. The effort of this campaign, backed by countless patriots on the ground, has provided a model for more conservative victories all across Idaho.”
Herndon stated of his victory “First thing’s first: All the glory belongs to God. I am humbled to have been chosen by the people of North Idaho to represent them. I want to thank Jim Woodward for his service to Idaho. While I had serious disagreements with him on policy and his voting record, I never doubted his commitment to public service. To those who voted for me, I am honored to have earned your vote. To those who didn’t, I hope you will give me the opportunity to listen to your concerns and represent you in Boise.”
