Libertarian Guv Wannabe Optimistic

Libertarian gubernatorial candidate John Bujak said the discord in Idaho’s Republican Party could drive down November voter turnout and help him peel off voters that would ordinarily vote GOP. “It’s really an environment where anything can happen,” Bujak, a former Canyon County prosecutor who is now a private practice defense attorney, said in an interview Tuesday. On Saturday, Idaho’s Republicans elected a new chairman, Steve Yates, after after a month of argument about whether Barry Peterson was still chairman after the convention, which ended without a specific vote on new leadership. A number of establishment-aligned Republicans – including Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter – faced primary challenges from tea party candidates this year. Bujak said he has been traveling around the state and spreading the word about his candidacy via the grassroots conservative movement/Nathan Brown, On the Agenda, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.
