BOISE — Now that the Idaho Freedom PAC has endorsed Ammon Bundy for governor, a law enforcement coalition is calling on any candidates endorsed by the campaign arm of the Idaho Freedom Foundation to disavow the endorsement, saying the group has shown it supports violent extremism and disrespect for the rule of law.

“It’s about his divisive and destructive rhetoric and his threats to other people, and the way that he has not respected the rule of law,” said Gary Raney, the former longtime Ada County sheriff who heads the Defend and Protect Coalition.
