Nelson To Pass On CdA Tribe Forum

Huckleberries hears … that GOPrimary winner Jai Nelson (shown Friday at Spirit Lake City Park for GOP bus tour) has turned down an invitation from the Coeur d’Alene Indian Tribe to appear at a candidates’ forum at the Wellness Center in Plummer at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Write-in candidate Rick Currie has accepted an invitation. Seems the invitations went out late. So Nelson can’t be blamed for having a conflict this late in the campaign season. Still, it would have been good to see a debate between Currie and her. Others invited to the forum are: Benewah County Commissioner Christina Crawford, D-Tensed and her challenger Phil Lampert, R-Plummer; Rep. Dick Harwood, St. Maries-R, and his opponent Jon Ruggles, Shoshone-D; and Incumbent Mary Lou Shepherd, D-Wallace and her opponent Shannon McMillian, R-Wallace are expected to attend the event.
