DFO (in response to Sho-Con comment that the issue of education hasn't helped the last 3 Democratic guv candidates): you know as well as I do that you can run a tree stump for governor as a Republican and get 51% of the vote. I suspect that will continue. But Idaho Republicans have done much to push ordinary Idahoans from the Republican camp to the Unaffiliated camp. Closing primaries. Supporting repeal of the 17th amendment. Ignoring scandal and missteps by GOP elected officials. Following Tom Luna over a cliff in its support of Students Come First. Pandering to the Tea Party. One of these days, the Idaho Republican Party will face a backlash that could put moderates back in power or make Democrats players again in legislative, congressional and statewide races. You're already seeing a backlash in Kootenai County against conservative RINO extremism. Pride cometh before the fall. Arrogance, too.
