Strong. Conservative. Leader.

“Idaho is a great state. With the right leaders, the right priorities and the right values, we can be even better. I’m not a career politician. I’m the conservative businessman running for Lieutenant Governor.” 

—Steve Yates

  • Strengthen Education: Steve knows that a top-notch education for our kids is the key to a stronger future for Idaho. Steve’s commitment to Idaho families—and Idaho family values—will be top priorities in Boise.
  • Cut Government Spending: Steve will stand up out-of-control spending disasters like Obamacare, as well as over-regulation that kills jobs and throttles our economy.

Join Steve to make Idaho even better
