At the sheriff's candidates forum, sponsored by the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans, sheriff's Major Ben Wolfinger talks with Bob Balser.
HucksOnline received this report from sheriff's forum staged by Reagan Republicans at noon today: "Ben Wolfinger's theme seemed to be Wolfinger's experience. Most Conservative Republicans said that Keith Hutcheson was their man. Someone stated how great it was to have a collection of Conservatives running for the job. Bob Foster is a supporter of the Second Amendment. He would like to shake the hand of the man who stopped the knife assault at Goodwill. Keith Hutcheson recounted how he picked up some illegal aliens once in this area and held them for ICE officials. He said he almost got in trouble go that one. ... Keith Hutcheson had printed letters and envelopes, so people could contribute to his campaign. The others just had business cards. Ben Wolfinger passed out business cards which (didn't have) the word 'Republican' on them but there was a "(R)" on the card this time. Some privately criticized Wolfinger for having contributed money to Democrats in the past."
