Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin has captured another endorsement from a nationally known conservative.   Having already been endorsed by former President Donald J. Trump, McGeachin now has the imprimatur of syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin.  The two this week discussed critical race theory during a visit.  Mainstream media denies CRT was or is in Idaho schools (then defends the theory) but McGeachin shared evidence with the writer.

Pair Discussed Critical Race Theory

We also need to note that one state senator told me that a local school in her district doesn’t officially teach CRT but teachers can independently introduce it in classrooms.  I believe this is called plausible deniability.  That leaves no official evidence.

Malkin recently wrote about the threat the radical notion poses even in states dominated by Republicans.

Malkin is a Nationally Known Conservative

I met Malkin at a dinner several years ago.  She was profiling my friend, Scott McConnell, for a book on discrimination in education.  He had been denied a master's degree in teaching because he believed schools needed a return to corporal punishment.  At the time he was an A student.  He took me along to dinner, where I suggested Malkin needed to host a weekday syndicated radio program.  At the time, she often substituted for Monica Crowley.  Malkin told me she instead wanted to focus on writing.

McGeachin’s campaign appears to be concentrating its efforts on potential strongholds in Idaho.  Twin Falls, Cassia, and Minidoka Counties are considered her weakest links.  The candidate made a recent appearance in Burley.  Primary Day is a little more than three months away.  Governor Brad Little still hasn’t announced his intentions.

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go.
