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

  • Cut Government Spending: Steve will stand up to out-of-control spending disasters like Obamacare, as well as over-regulation that kills jobs and throttles our economy.

CDA Press: Yates Makes Case for No. 2 Position

September 22, 2017

Steve Cameron, CDA Press – It’s certainly fair to ask Steve Yates why he’s running to be lieutenant governor of Idaho. This is a gentleman who already has worked within the highest levels of the federal government — he was a deputy national security adviser in the White House at age 32 — and owns a resume that includes stints at the Heritage Foundation conservative think tank, as a liaison officer for the NSA at the Department of Commerce, as an aide to former Vice President Dick Cheney and as a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team.
