In her latest newsletter, challenger Mary Souza (shown w/John Goedde in Duane Rasmussen photo) writes about her North Idaho College Republicans debate against Sen. John Goedde: When it was finally our turn, we were asked 5 questions covering these topics: Our top priorities, State Health Exchange, Common Core, Urban Renewal and Guns on campus. It was quite enlightening. Here’s a quick synopsis what I recall about our answers, and I think you’ll quickly see some clear differences in our views. Please remember we only had ONE minute to give our thoughts on very complex issues:
- Top Priorities:
Sen. John Goedde: Education and jobs
Mary Souza: Protecting the rights of individuals and businesses from the overreach of the Fed. Gov. through the Obamacare Exchange, Common Core in schools, and the 36% of our state’s budget that currently comes from the Feds.
- Guns on Campus Bill:
Sen. John Goedde: I voted against the bill. (Then John went on to give an example of cars on a freeway and I couldn’t follow his logic at all, so I can’t relate the story to you, except to say it was very ambiguous.
Mary Souza: I am in favor of the measure. I believe we are all safer when legal, responsible, educated and trained people are carrying guns. More here.
Question: What question would you like to ask both Mary & John?
