Eye On Boise

'A very positive message'

BSU political scientist emeritus Jim Weatherby, after viewing the latest campaign commercials in the 1st District congressional race that went out today from Democrat Walt Minnick, said, “I think it’s a very positive message that will resonate with voters in the 1st District. This, of course, is the opening shot. … No specifics here, and I’m not surprised at this point, and no reference to his opponent at this point. … I think that early introduction is important. It’s Walt Minnick defining himself, rather than having Bill Sali define him as some wild-eyed liberal spender, or another puppet of Nancy Pelosi, or however Sali might attack him. It’s Walt Minnick presenting himself as a Western moderate Democrat.”
