DRIGGS — Paulette Jordan, a Democratic candidate for senator in Idaho, will be making stops throughout eastern Idaho during a 12-day “Multi-County Tour of Southern Idaho.”

Jordan, who unsuccessfully ran against Gov. Brad Little in 2018, is running against United States Sen. Jim Risch.

“She really cares a lot about people first,” Abby Reeser, part of Jordan’s campaign team, told EastIdahoNews.com. “She wants to hold town hall meetings to meet community members and students alike and get an idea of what their concerns are for the state and what she would need to do as their representative.”

Questions from voters will be taken at each event.

“Along this tour, Jordan will focus on defending Idahoans against COVID-19. In addition to encouraging all residents to wear masks and follow safeguards, Jordan will discuss the ways she will work toward greater protection for all Idahoans in the Senate,” according to a news release.

Jordan is a member of the Coeur d’Alene tribe. More information about Jordan’s campaign can be found on her website.

All events will be streamed through Facebook live. Event names marked with “*” denote a virtual-only event. The full list of stops in her tour are as follows:
