Help Take Back Idaho From Extremism

Take Back Idaho's mission is to maintain the peaceful and respectful way of life that Idahoans have enjoyed for generations. They provide crucial information needed to make informed voting decisions, utilizing a variety of mediums backed by data and evidence.

Take Back Idaho emphasizes empowering Idahoans by providing context and data on special interest groups that use confrontational tactics to promote self-serving agendas that do not prioritize the well-being of Idaho citizens.

We've assembled a team of Idahoans who are committed to helping Idahoans identify extremism and use their experience to help educate and combat misinformation.

Meet the Take Back Idaho PAC Board of Directors

Extremist organizations in Idaho use the confrontational politics playbook that is designed to intimidate and strike fear toward anyone who dares speak up against their misinformation. It takes courage to take a stand against the paper tiger organizations who attempt to force their agenda upon our state to benefit their donors and appease their base.

Our board members have been engaged in Idaho policy-making for decades. Our group includes former Idaho Attorney General and retired State Supreme Court Justice, former Republican Speaker of the House, former Secretary of State, state education leaders, and long-time advocates for common sense solutions.

Our non-partisan board represents Idaho values across the state.
