And still, it’s not hard to see why she’s getting so much attention. On primary night, Jordan helped pull in a massive voter turnout, which isn’t the only proof the campaign’s work is paying off. Jordan’s press secretary Gayraud Townsend said the campaign is spending about $8 for every vote they bring in, versus their opposition, which is more in the $75 per range. Jordan has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood, People for the American Way, Democracy for America, Indivisible, and People for Bernie Sanders
The Nation, a progressive news outlet, called Jordan “the new face of rural politics in America.” In an interview with A Plus, she spoke candidly about expanding Medicaid for Idahoans, a common Democratic goal, but also about how the “single party majority system that we see now has failed us for decades.” She railed against the corporations and special interests that dominate mainstream politics and said she’d like to ask President Trump why “all Idahoans don’t have access to medicine.” Jordan is also pushing to legalize marijuana and raise the minimum wage.
