Edit: Choice Between ‘Fors,’ ‘Against’

Coeur d'Alene Press editorial today: Monday night's legislative candidate forum at North Idaho College revealed few surprises. What you thought you knew about the candidates was probably confirmed after nearly three hours of talk. What stood out to a number of attendees, however, is how clearly two Republican camps are divided. We won't accuse either side of following scripts, exactly, but it sure seemed like the two groups had agreed on strategies prior to the forum that paint the camps in distinctly different, easy-to-follow colors. And that could make voting in the May 20 primary much simpler for citizens who struggle to keep track of all the horses in the race. Here's how we perceived the delineation. Please note that this is simply one opinion. Please also note, candidates, that if the following misrepresents your stance on the issues, you might do well to review and revise your message and its delivery. More here.

Question: Can you break the GOPrimary candidates down into two camps -- the "fors" and the "against"?
