The Idaho Republican Party has announced that thirteen Republican candidates have officially filed to participate in the Idaho Presidential Primary Election on March 8th, 2016.

The following Republican candidates will appear on the 2016 Presidential Primary Ballot:

 · Jeb Bush 

 · Ben Carson 

 · Chris Christie 

 · Ted Cruz 

 · Carly Fiorina 

 · Lindsey Graham 

 · Mike Huckabee 

 · John R. Kasich 

 · Peter Messina 

 · Rand Paul 

 · Marco Rubio 

 · Rick Santorum 

 · Donald J. Trump

"It's a great time to be a Republican, we have many good quality candidates for Idaho Republican voters to choose from," said Idaho GOP Executive Director David Johnston. "While Republican candidates come from all walks of life and bring unique ideas to the table, the Democrats have scandal-ridden Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders as their choices."

Republican voters may participate by heading to their polling location on March 8th, but early voting and absentee voting will be available.

All other federal, statewide, and local primary election races will still take place in the regular primary on May 17th.
