About Idaho Women for Biden
Richardson serves as the volunteer leader of the group. She said its growth is from the word-of-mouth of its members. This diverse coalition believes Idaho needs to move in a new and better direction. When asked about the coalition, Richardson said, “These women were brought together by their shared enthusiasm for Joe Biden. Regardless of their political backgrounds, they find that he shares their values and their ideals. They are fed up with the current political environment and are looking for someone who will bring us together as a nation we can be proud of.”
A local member of the group is Christa Hazel. Christa is a former Kootenai County Republican Central Committeewoman. She also served as a Coeur d’Alene School District trustee. She was quoted in the CDA Press article about the group. “I was a lifelong Republican and I’ve been very involved with Kootenai County politics and helped many campaigns. I felt like the things that were being focused on were not aligning with the concerns I have, and it’s refreshing to find women in Idaho who share my view ….I would like for us to be talking about roads, infrastructure, taxes, education, and leadership during this pandemic. I believe the Biden campaign addresses those things in a way that energizes me, and it’s been a long time for a candidate to get me excited.”
