State: Butch & Co Upends Tea Party

Photographer Duane Rasmussen provides this nice portrait shot of Gov. Butch Otter during a Coeur d'Alene visit.

Here’s a link to the results as they stand now. Top-of-ticket results haven’t changed; Gov. Butch Otter is still defeating challenger Russ Fulcher, and the tea party challengers to all top state GOP officials have fallen short, with Todd Hatfield’s challenge of state Controller Brandon Woolf coming closest, at 50.9 percent to 49.1 percent. Sherri Ybarra is winning the GOP race for state superintendent of schools, to face Jana Jones in November; and Lawrence Denney is leading the four-way GOP race for Idaho Secretary of State, to face Democrat Holli Woodings in November. More here.

Question: The Tea Party may be strong in Kootenai County/North Idaho, but it appears its influence is waning at the state level. Thoughts?
