MP2 Candidates Come Courting?

Sens. Russell Fulcher and Steven Thayn are speaking to a Coeur d’Alene group next Monday — but one of the organizers says the agenda is about policies, not politics. The group calls itself MP2 — and according to its Facebook page, the group says its goal is to increase prosperity “by motivating people to become more productive.” Here’s how MP2 secretary Melissa Thomas described the North Idaho College forum, according to Dave Oliveria’s Huckleberries Online blog at the Spokane Spokesman-Review: “This will be a panel discussion with local legislators previewing legislation dealing with Common Core, county indigent fund, Medicaid expansion, Obamacare, and other education issues.” Of course, neither Fulcher nor Thayn are what Panhandle voters would consider “local legislators”/Kevin Richert, The EDge.

Question: Frankly, I don't have a lot of use for statewide candidates who troll for votes in Kootenai County once every four year, especially Tea Party ones. Do you?
