Letter: Vote Fulcher To Elect Balukoff

No sooner do I read an excellent North Idaho Business Journal article about how our state, county and city governments must be ego free and cooperate to attract 1,000+ jobs like Twin Falls and Idaho’s Magic Valley have done, than I read a guest column from a tea party guy whose sole purpose is obstruction and the word “NO.” A.J. Balukoff (the Democrat running for governor of Idaho) should do everything he can to make sure the tea party candidate Russ Fulcher defeats Governor Butch Otter in the primary. That way Balukoff is virtually guaranteed a victory/Mike Reno, of Post Falls, letter to the editor, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here. (AP file photo: Democrat A.J. Balukoff at his gubernatorial announcement)

Question: Is it a good strategy, in Idaho, to vote for a Tea Party candidate over a lackluster Republican governor for the purpose of electing a Democrat?
