Toby Won’t Be Going Away

Challenger Toby Schindelbeck, left, and incumbent Rep. Luke Malek, R-Coeur d'Alene, listen to a question at their Chamber of Commerce debate at North Idaho College earlier this spring. Although Malek defeated Schindelbeck in the House District 3A GOPrimary race, Schindelbeck won't be going anywhere. Schindelbeck, who ran for a Chico, Calif., City Council post two years ago, won the Precinct 47 committee member post and almost upset Malek. Here's predicting that Schindelbeck will be back to challenge Malek in two years -- and that the Sword of Toby hanging over Luke's head will keep Luke voting further to the right than he would normally do.
