The politician, Brad Little, who was elected governor, opposed dam breaching. His opponent, Paulette Jordan, was for dam breaching. She is still making the rounds advocating breaching to save Snake River salmon. Little outperformed Jordan three to one in Clearwater County and four to one in Idaho County.

I wonder how many of the members of Idaho Rivers Community Alliance voted for Jordan. I wonder how many of their members support IRU or other conservation organizations that support breaching. I wonder when the road signs in and out of Riggins proclaim, “Breach the dams!”

Haven’t seen one yet. I have seen signs denigrating IRU and Friends of the Clearwater.
