John C. Shirts, running for the State House of Representatives Seat A, opened by saying, “I’m a fifth generation Idahoan, my family homesteaded in Washington County in the 1880’s. We’ve been there ever since. I was raised on a farm and ranch over there and, I hope you won’t hold it against me but I went to Weiser High School. I know there’s a little bit of a rivalry between us.”

In some districts, only one party is represented, so the primary also will effectively determine who wins that office.
