Bjorn: Ron Paul got more votes than Barak Obama!
DEM Barack Obama 23,988 56%
REP Ron Paul 29,749 24%
ThomG: And that matters, why?
DFO: Ah, ThomG, that little stat that Bjorn points out underscores the difficult challenge Walt Minnick and Larry LaRocco face in the fall elections. Way more Repub voters than Dem ones in Idaho, as we all know. In reality, Obama might have a tough time beating Bill Sali in a statewide Idaho race. Now, that’s a sobering thought for you resurgent D’s.
