Eye On Boise

He’s baaaaack…

Rep. Wayne Meyer, R-Rathdrum, lost to Phil Hart in the Republican primary, but now Meyer has filed as a write-in candidate against Hart in the general election.

Meyer said he first got the idea when his dad told him he’d written in Meyer’s name on an absentee ballot, but it wouldn’t be counted because Meyer hadn’t declared as a write-in. “I wanted his vote to count,” Meyer said. Since then, he said, “It has seriously mushroomed into, I believe, an all-out campaign.”

Hart had lost to Meyer two years earlier when Hart was the Constitution Party candidate. This spring, he ran as a Republican and beat Meyer.

There’s no Democrat in the race – just the Republican primary victor and the Republican write-in incumbent.
