Trib Jeers Flip-Flopping Russ Fulcher

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase gives Jeers ... to Idaho GOP gubernatorial hopeful Russ Fulcher. The Meridian Republican wants Idaho to follow Indiana's lead and drop Common Core. As governor of Idaho, I will push for legislation that allows Idaho to opt out of this top-down, one-size-fits-all federal program," Fulcher said. He's having a John Kerry moment. Three years ago as a state senator, Fulcher endorsed those standards. Now he's changed his mind - just in time to appeal to his party's conservative base in Idaho's closed GOP primary. Full Cheers & Jeers column here.

Question: Do you think Fulcher is pandering to conservative hardliners now? Or has he had a change of heart about Common Core?
