Wow - on tonight's "Idaho Reports" program on Idaho Public Television - the last show of the season - 1st District GOP congressional candidates Vaughn Ward and Raul Labrador appear together and take questions from a panel on which I join Jim Weatherby, Kevin Richert, Steve Crump and host Thanh Tan - and things get pretty hot. The exchange is the first of three segments of tonight's half-hour show, which also includes discussion of the upcoming "Idaho Debates," and Q-&-A with Col. Tim Marsano about the upcoming deployment of the Idaho Army National Guard's 116th BCT to Iraq. One thing this very interesting and lively exchange between the two candidates makes clear: Their upcoming debate on May 11th, which will air live statewide on Idaho Public TV at 8 p.m. Mountain time, 7 p.m. Pacific, is not to be missed.
"Idaho Reports" airs tonight at 8, is rebroadcast Sunday at 11 a.m. Mountain time/10 a.m. Pacific time, and can be viewed online here. The program also will be broadcast on the radio Saturday at 10 a.m. on KISU-FM.
