LeFavour: Pity Moderate R's In Idaho Legislature

I know how hard it is to be a Democrat but being a moderate Republican might just be harder in here and may produce lesser, more stressful results. It is the fear thing. Fear of your own party. Something about party allegiance, where, under this kind of conservative leadership, you might pay dearly for stepping out of the fold. We Democrats don't bother MaryLou, but Tom Trail, Mark Snodgrass, Leon Smith and Carlos Bilbao have paid for representing their districts and may still be paying for who they voted for as speaker or how they voted on something or how they spoke out and objected to a process or a piece of legislation. But that's what is feeding the fear, all this tension, all these primaries, a year of fear of primaries/Rep. Nicole LeFavour. More here

Question: Would you rather be a Democrat or a moderate Republican in an Idaho Legislature dominated by very conservative leaders?
