Candidate Would be First Indian Governor

Paulette Jordan, who has won the Democratic nomination for governor of Idaho, would, if elected, be the first Native American to be a governor in the United States.

She will be facing Republican nominee Lt. Governor Brad Little.

Jordan won the nomination with 58 percent of the total in the primary. She had been a member of the legislature before resigning to run for governor.

Jordan was raised on an Idaho farm. She is a member of the Coeur d’Alene tribe, which operates a casino in Idaho. She became the youngest person elected to the tribal council, and was also finance chairman of the executive board of the National Indian Gaming Association.
