Challenger C.T. “Chris” Troupis came out swinging against Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden Thursday night as the two Republicans met in a televised debate, accusing the third-term official of being “weak” and having “lost his way.” “Perhaps decades ago, he had the right vision, but his weak actions show that he’s been captured by the immense power of office,” Troupis said. “Time and again he’s chosen to side with the government rather than the people.” Wasden countered: “It’s important to distinguish between rhetoric and reality. You need to have an attorney general who will tell you what you need to know rather than what you want to hear. The one who will tell you the whole story, not just the part that can be manipulated to one’s political advantage”/Betsy Z. Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
