Republican Brad Little wins Idaho governor's race

Posted: Updated:
BOISE, Idaho -

Longtime Republican lawmaker Brad Little has defeated Democratic challenger Paulette Jordan to become Idaho's next governor.
  
Little's win comes as no surprise in the deeply conservative state, despite significant national media attention given to his opponent.
  
Little has been lieutenant governor since 2009 and has vowed to continue retiring Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter's legacy of leading the state's recent explosive growth.
  
Opponent Paulette Jordan, a former state lawmaker and member of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, was the first woman to earn her party's nomination in Idaho.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - If there is anyone who knows their way around a KC-135 Stratotanker, it's Tech. Sgt. Shawn Roberge. Roberge is an Aircraft Structural Maintenance Section Chief; in other words, he fixes things. And since Roberge is constantly working on planes that were built in the 1950's, it's fair to say he stays busy. "The Air Force depends more and more on the 135's before the new tanker comes online," said Roberge.
