Idaho's attorney general juggles a broad caseload. The work includes hot-button issues such as Idaho's new 'ag-gag' law and the state's ban on same-sex marriage, and the job of protecting Idaho consumers and providing legal counsel to state agencies and legislators. The attorney general also sits on Idaho's land board, voting on state endowment policy. For public schools and a host of other beneficiaries, millions of dollars are at stake.

Incumbent Lawrence Wasden of Nampa is no stranger to the Idaho electorate; he has held they attorney general's job since 2002.

Chris Troupis of Eagle, his May Republican primary opponent, has been involved in several high-profile cases in the past, arguing against the removal of Boise's Ten Commandments monument and for the closed Republican primary election.

Join us on May 12 to hear both candidates discuss the law, the issues and their vision for the future. The candidates will answer audience questions.

(The Republican nominee and the Democratic candidate Bruce Bistline will be invited to a subsequent forum this fall.)

Chair: Kevin Richert
Moderator: Dr. Jim Weatherby
