Robyn Brody wins Idaho Supreme Court seat

Attorneys in the News

Twin Falls attorney Robyn Brody saw victory in a close statewide race by securing a seat on the Idaho Supreme Court in Tuesday's election.

Brody beat Republican Sen. Curt McKenzie in Tuesday's election. It was the state's first high court runoff election in nearly two decades.

Brody was overwhelmingly backed by law enforcement and attorney groups, as well as had received multiple high dollar donations from across the state.

McKenzie had support from Republican-leaning groups and from most GOP lawmakers, but failed to secure the votes needed to win the spot.

The fight over the non-partisan seat was the top competitive seat in the general election. Idaho's Republican stronghold throughout the state results in just a handful of tight political races and even fewer surprises.

All three of Idaho's Republican congressional candidates secured their bids for re-election against their Democratic challengers.

Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson will go on to serve a tenth term, while Republican U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador will serve a fourth term. Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo was also successful in securing his fourth term in office.

Meanwhile, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump won all four of Idaho's electorate votes in Tuesday's election before becoming the nation's president-elect.

The only statewide constitutional amendment on this year's November ballot was too close to call Wednesday morning — as were many of the expected tight legislative races.

Two years ago, Idaho voters said no to amend the state constitution to allow lawmakers veto power over administrative rules submitted by the executive branch. Convinced the amendment's failure was due to uninformed voters, legislative leaders have launched an expensive new campaign this year urging the public to vote yes.
