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.
