Ultrasound Vote Could Haunt Keough

Senate Bill 1387, the Idaho ultrasound bill, passed 23-12. Likely result: Passage in the House by a larger margin a few days from now, and signature by Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter some days after that. And this likely will be the piece of legislation for which this session is most remembered. Don’t be surprised if a number of legislative campaigns center around it. Of the debates, the strongest may have been that of Senator Shawn Keough (pictured), R-Sandpoint, who is apt to be in the political whirlwind surrounding this – “my primary opponent has made it her number one issue”/Randy Stapilus, Ridenbaugh Press. More here.

Question: Would you vote against an exceptional incumbent like Shawn Keough, if she voted contrary to your wishes on a pet issue of yours?
