‘Greater Idaho’ measure passes in 13th Oregon county

Residents in Crook County, Oregon, approved the “Greater Idaho” measure Tuesday that would require the county to proceed with efforts to secede from the state and join Idaho. Voters passed the measure with 53%, making it the 13th county in eastern Oregon to approve it. The Greater Idaho movement aims for additional counties to support secession in Oregon, potentially leading to the eastern two-thirds joining Idaho. Backers believe conservative areas in Oregon want to join Idaho for better representation than liberal cities like Portland.
