Early Impressions — DFO

Wow! State Sen. Russ Fulcher leading Gov. Butch Otter with absentees and 16% of the vote in? Mary Souza leading state Sen. John Goedde. Newcomer Toby Schindelbeck narrowly trailing state Rep. Luke Malek. Marc Eberlein crushing Commissioner Todd Tondee in their race. And the three Tea-publicans candidates leading solidly in Legislative District 3, including state Sen. Bob Nonini. This may be the night that control of Kootenai County politics swings to the Tea Party. Still a lot of counting to do. But it looks like the treasurer's race at the county courthouse is the only one worth watching at this point.
