Councilman Mike Kennedy told Huckleberries moments ago that he's “officially undecided” re: plans to seek a third term as a Coeur d'Alene City Council member. “I have made no final decision,” Kennedy said. “There's still plenty of time.” Candidates don't have to officially announce until this fall. Kennedy is currently dealing with a serious health issue involving his extended family. In 2005, he won a first term after a three-way race involving strident Bloem administration critic Mary Souza. In 2009, he won a squeaker over challenger Jim Brannon that led to a lengthy court challenge in which he emerged with a three-vote margin of victory. The challenge cost Kennedy and the city more than $200,000.
Question: Could Kennedy win re-election to a third term with GOP hard-liners lined up against him?
