Although this is most likely another cry for attention, and he doesn't truly want to have to work at an actual job like governor, a perverse part of me hopes that he wins. Idaho deserves him.

If he does win, it will be a s**tfest. (Like Oktoberfest, except with s**t.) For the Ammonites, "freedom" means doing anything they want without consequences. I want to see what happens when he's faced with others whose idea of "freedom" is identical, and who are just as militant, but the effect goes against Ammon's own interests.

He encourages protests at the private residences of public officials whose policies he opposes; what will happen when he, as governor, or his own political appointees are met with protests at their own homes?

I'd prefer Al Bundy as governor. He'd be more fun.

Al once quipped: "Behind every successful man is a woman who didn't marry me."

ACTUALLY, I think TED Bundy would be the best option out of all of them

Are recent move-in voters prepared for radicalism? I doubt it;

farmers prefer consistency & stability in their products, prices, & sales, ability to get crops to market (highways, rail)

Bundy might upset the apple cart, so to speak...

I'm betting against a Bundy victory.

Bundy is such a joke. I think Idahoans will be too smart to vote for him, except for the conspiracy nuts in the northern region who gathered under the influence of Bo Gritz.

I think he’s running because he wants MONEY. It’s that simple. He’ll live the high life on campaign funds and stuff as much in his pockets as he can get away with.

https://www.ktvb.com/article/news/politics/ammon-governor-announcement/277-dc09432b-4761-4c2f-882b-187761d9c585

The Idaho Republican Party issued a statement on June 5 stating Bundy is not welcome inside the Idaho GOP. Republican Party Chairman Tom Luna accused Bundy of dividing the party, saying they do not support his 'antics' or what they call political theater. He adds Bundy is not registered to vote in Idaho and is not registered as a Republican.

https://idahonews.com/news/local/ammon-bundy-files-paperwork-to-run-for-idaho-governor-but-election-officials-find-error

But state election officials say Bundy's paperwork is already invalid due to an error: he listed himself as campaign treasurer, and in order to be the treasurer, you need to be registered to vote.

The state says Bundy is currently not registered to vote.

He will either need to register to vote, and then re-file the documents or find a new treasurer and re-file the paperwork.

An anti-government activist running for government office? Isn't he banned from entering the State Capitol? How's that going to work?

One of the many benefits of being delusional is that there is no requirement for being logically consistent. It also worked for Gordon "I don't believe we teach that" Hinckley, though he was just a lying SOB, not delusional.

Bundy does not have a chance. Right up there with Democrats in Idaho. It is a perfect state. It must be because they keep voting in the same kind of people to keep it that way.

My first thought was that I was being insulted. My second that you miss the irony. Think it is the latter.

after attending Ricks (Yes, that long ago!) and briefly as an Idaho State Trooper, I totally agree; me being a trooper there at that time < YOUR HAIR IS TOO LONG! >, TOOK A MAJOR CUT IN PAY, etc etc etc... It wasn't a good fit.

On the upside, self & gf conceived our first child in Idaho Falls...

wiki (ultimate source of Truth & Light) says his address is in Emmett, ID.

whether or not he's a registered voter should be a matter of public record (it is in Washington State).

I read somewhere that he is neither a registered voter nor a registered party member.

This is some Captain Moroni stuff right here. He probably feels bad about missing the tourist visit to the capital on January 6.

Ha! Bundy has as much of a chance of governing Idaho as Joseph Smith had as becoming the US president. Just another nut case running for office.

It’s mostly about getting attention and rallying a small handful of followers. Ammon is a big fish an a very small pond. He lives the attention. He’s addicted to it.

Melissa Sue Robinson has also announced that she is running for governor of ID. She is a trans woman.

I would pay money to see her and Ammon Bundy on the same debate stage!

She is running as a D, so they would both have to win their primaries to be on the same debate stage. I doubt if either will win their primary, but hey.

Yes, but only if they are in the same party. In the primary, you are running against people in your own party. Ms Robinson is a Democrat. Mr Bundy is a tin foil hatter.
