Paulette Jordan

State: Idaho

Elected Office: Governor

Reason for Endorsement:

Paulette Jordan (ID-Gov) is an enrolled member of the Coeur d’Alene tribe, the only native member of the Idaho state legislature, and she’s running for governor (she’d be the first Native American woman to be elected governor in US history!). Paulette knows how rural communities can be denied access to quality health care and education. She supports expanding Medicaid and investing in education—not just as a Democrat, but as someone who knows first-hand the crucial impact these programs have on Idahoans.
