Rammell OK w/Militias Showing Force

You know that ABC's "Nightline" featured that Boundary County militia in a recent segment. But did you know that Idaho gubernatorial wannabe Rex Rammell was present at the North Idaho Lightfoot Militia training session and was quoted as saying the following in view of health care reform: "It's because of the current administration's politics -- the more they force upon the states, the more noise there is," (Rammell) says. "The more concern people have, the less freedom there is. Lots of Idahoans believe the health care bill is very intrusive on our individual rights. ... We are not going to allow them to come into the state and make what we believe are unconstitutional mandates. Even if they can get them passed in D.C., we are not going to all that to happen. These guys want to show a little force behind the scene... I don't have a problem with that"/TPMMuckraker. More here H/T: Bubblehead, The Stupid Shall Be Punished

Question: Rammell won 5% of the vote during his 2008 run for the U.S. Senate. Will he win a higher percentage of the vote this year for governor by running on a platform that supports a statewide militia?
