Purdy Announces For Idaho Senate District 9

"I believe as our Founders did: it is best that the family is the primary decision-maker, not the government.”

Viki Purdy, Candidate for Idaho Senate District 9


Viki Purdy of New Meadows has announced her candidacy for the Idaho State Senate in Legislative District 9.

“We as Idahoans are being stripped of the power to control our own destiny,” said Purdy. “Our land, healthcare, and the ability to provide a bright future for our children are progressively being transferred from us to some government entity. I believe as our Founders did: it is best that the family is the primary decision-maker, not the government.”

A native Idahoan, Viki has been married to her husband Dana for 37 years. She has two adult children and three grandchildren. Together, the Purdy’s built a family business dairy farming and currently own a ranch in New Meadows. Viki is a strong advocate for private property rights, as well as the proper care and management of Idaho’s lands and water resources. “When it comes to our natural resources, I will work tirelessly to afford Idahoans more opportunity to control and enjoy the resources God gave us,” Purdy said.

Purdy opposes the expansion of Obamacare and believes that free-market alternatives are the best approach. She also opposes the Common Core federal education mandate and supports the removal of the SBAC (Standard Based Assessment Consortium) as the benchmark for evaluating education performance, stating: “Our teachers should be free to innovate and teach, not hard-wired into a cookie-cutter education approach that is great for the bureaucracy, but not for our kids.”

Viki Purdy has been an active Republican for many years. She currently serves as the chairman of the Idaho GOP Region III committee. For a part of the 2015 session, Viki represented District 9 in the Idaho Legislature on behalf of Representative Judy Boyle. Viki has worked on natural resource issues with Congressman Helen Chenoweth and continues to support conservative Republican candidates.

The Republican Liberty Caucus of Idaho PAC (RLCID PAC) has endorsed 22 candidates for the Idaho Legislature for the May 17th Republican Primary. To accept the RLCID PAC endorsement candidates are required to sign the “Liberty Compact” (below). We will be announcing the endorsed candidates as they sign and return their “Liberty Compacts” to us. Please check back often as we add names of endorsed candidates to this list. We will leave this post pinned to the top of this page now through May 17th.

NOTICE: You may be surprised to not see one or more of your favorite legislators on this list of endorsed candidates. That is likely because they do not have a Primary challenger. The RLCID PAC did not consider a candidate for endorsement in the Primary if they did not have a challenger. The RLCID PAC will announce its list of General endorsements sometime after the May 17th Primary. Any candidate endorsed in the Primary is automatically endorsed in the General.

2016 Idaho Legislature Endorsed Candidates:

D9S: Viki Purdy

Liberty Compact
“As your elected representative I will work to: Restore liberty, not restrict it; shrink government, not expand it; reduce taxes, not raise them; abolish programs, not create them; promote the freedom and independence of citizens, not the interference of government in their lives; and observe the limited, enumerated powers of our Constitution, not ignore them.”
