Jim Hansen from the left-leaning advocacy group United Vision for Idaho made an astute observation over the weekend.

Unopposed In North Idaho:
Kootenai County Prosecutor: Repub Barry McHugh
Bonner County Prosecutor: Repub Louis Marshall
Shoshone County Commissioner District 1: Demo Vince Rinaldi
House District 2A: Demo Mary Lou Shepherd
House District 3A: Repub Jim Clark
Senate District 5: Repub Jim Hammond
House District 5A: Repub Bob Nonini
House District 5B: Repub Frank Henderson

Question: Four of 15 legislative seats are uncontested in North Idaho. Do you believe Panhandle Democrats did a decent job fielding a slate of candidates this year.
