Idaho - Overview
Idaho has two congressional districts that held primary elections on Tuesday May 23rd.  The result of these elections displayed two divergent issues that are a symptom of the national phenomenon.  The 1st Congressional district had six candidates running in the Republican primary, resulting in a winner who had far less than the majority of the votes.  The 2nd district had the exact opposite problem as only one candidate ran in both the Republican and Democratic primaries.  The only problem the two districts share was the poor voter turnout a problem that has plagued Idaho for years.
