Idaho’s own “Top Gun,” Representative Priscilla Giddings will be the speaker at the June 19 Liberty Dinner hosted by the Pocatello-Chubbuck Observer. Giddings will be speaking on the fight to maintain Idaho’s conservative values.
Giddings, who recently declared for Lt. Governor, is an Air Force Academy graduate, a fighter pilot, and served nine years of active duty with the Air Force, accumulating nearly 1,000 combat flight hours and nine air medals through three combat deployments. During flight training she was awarded “Top Gun” as an A-10 fighter pilot.
In her announcement of her entry into the Lt. Governor’s race, Giddings said, “The outgoing Lieutenant Governor is leaving a vacancy in Idaho leadership which is critical to fill with a principled conservative. Idaho’s next Lieutenant Governor needs to have a solid record of conservative leadership to effectively combat our state’s move away from our constitution and our conservative values.”
Giddings’ conservative record is unmatched, earning her a 100% conservative score from the Idaho Freedom Foundation and a 96% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union. She fought for the grocery tax repeal, strongly supported pro-life legislation, helped pass the pro-gun Constitutional Carry law, and serves as the co-chair of the Lieutenant Governor’s Education Task Force to combat Marxism in the schools.
Giddings and her husband Matt live in White Bird with their children. She is a lifetime member of the VFW, the American Legion, and the NRA. She was recognized with Idaho’s 2018 Outstanding Woman Veteran Award, and is active with many community organizations.
