Tue 8:30 | "Greater Idaho" Envisions Swiping Parts Of Oregon & California

21 hours ago

The State of Jefferson separatist movement has competition: some Northwest residents want to make Idaho bigger, to take in parts of Oregon and Northern California. 

The "Greater Idaho" vision would push the western boundary of Idaho hundreds of miles west, to go all the way to the Pacific.  The point is to consolidate conservative parts of the region that feel steamrolled by the blue-state attitudes of Oregon and California. 

Places like Eugene and Bend are conspicuously absent from the plan. 

Mike McCarter of LaPine, still in Oregon, joins us with a description of the effort.
