Paulette Jordan is a member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe. Before entering politics, she sat on the Coeur d’Alene Tribal Council the Tribe’s sovereign government. She is also the first Native American politician to serve in the Idaho Legislature. She served Benewah County for two terms from December 1, 2014 to February 14, 2018. During her final term, Paulette stood as the only elected Democrat representing North Idaho. In 2018, she ran a failed campaign for Governor. However, she is not giving up. On February 7, 2020, she announced a run for the United States Senate against incumbent Senator Jim Risch.

The Nation called Jordan the new face of rural politics in America. In June 2018, Jordan remarked at the Idaho Democratic Party convention at College of Idaho in Caldwell, “We have begun the progressive movement across the country that people are believing in… The precipice of this movement begins in Idaho.” In August, 2018, the New York Times named her as one of four candidates capable of becoming the first female governors of their respective states.
