Jorgenson’s Try To Block Vick Fails

A North Idaho senator’s initial attempt to get his primary challenger tossed off the ballot has failed, but Sen. Mike Jorgenson says he’s not giving up. Jorgenson, R-Hayden, last week filed a complaint with the Idaho Secretary of State’s office saying that his GOP challenger, Steven Vick of Dalton Gardens, isn’t qualified for the ballot because of a 2006 voter-registration glitch. Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa said today that Vick meets registration requirements to run; Jorgenson now plans to take his complaint to court. You can read my full story here at spokesman.com. Vick told Eye on Boise he was recruited to run against Jorgenson by the two state representatives from Jorgenson’s District 3: Reps. Jim Clark, R-Hayden Lake, and Phil Hart, R-Athol/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Did Mike Jorgenson hurt himself by making an issue of Steve Vick’s eligibility — and providing Vick w/a lot of ink and pixels that he wouldn’t have had otherwise? And/or: What do you make of Vick’s statement that Jim Clark and Phil Hart recruited him to run against Jorgenson?
