Hart, Barbieri To Face Challengers

Two longtime Hayden-area businessmen have announced their candidacies against Idaho Reps. Phil Hart and Vito Barbieri in the GOP primary. Ed Morse, who is challenging Hart, is a real estate appraiser and consultant and board member of the Reagan Republicans group; Mark Fisher (pictured), challenging Barbieri, runs an employee benefits insurance and consulting firm and is a past president of the local Rotary Club. The two, who held a joint announcement last month at a Hayden deli, say they offer practical solutions to the North Idaho district's problems, from jobs to regulations, rather than ideological crusades with little impact/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Can businessmen Ed Morse and Mark Fisher beat the hardline House District 3 team of Phil Hart & Vito Barbieri in the GOP primaries?
