Unlike Otter, Simpson Will Debate

Voters in Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District, which covers the eastern portion of the state, including parts of Boise, Twin Falls, Pocatello, Idaho Falls, and Rexburg, can get a closer look at the three men who want to represent them in the U.S. Congress.  Republicans Mike Simpson, who has held the seat since being elected in 1999, Chick Heileson, and state Rep. Russ Mathews, R-Idaho  Falls, are set to debate Sunday night at the Idaho State Capitol building as part of Idaho Public Television’s (IPTV) effort to televise debates for all major primary races/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter. More here.

Question: How come U.S. Rep Mike Simpson can find to debate his GOPrimary challengers, but Gov. Butch Otter can't?
