Eye On Boise: Guv Seeks Special Debate Rules

Current Gov. Jim Risch laid out an unusual suggestion for the format of his statewide televised debate against election opponent Larry LaRocco, the former congressman he faces in his bid for another term as Idaho’s lieutenant governor: Risch wants the two candidates interviewed separately for 30 minutes apiece, with the other nowhere in sight. ... Jason Risch, Risch's son, wrote in an Aug. 17 letter to the organizers of the Idaho Debates that the suggested new format was “due to the disruptive nature of previous experiences with the opposition.” (For the complete post by Betsy Russell/Eye On Boise, click here.)

Question: Does Gov. Risch have a legit concern?
