Treasurer’s debate reset for next Thursday

The canceled debate in the Idaho state treasurer's race, originally set for tonight as part of the "Idaho Debates" on Idaho Public Television, has been rescheduled for next Thursday at 8:30 p.m. State Treasurer Ron Crane asked for the change, saying he'd lost his voice and couldn't debate tonight. Democratic challenger Deborah Silver reacted with suspicion, saying the cancellation came as Crane was resisting her public records requests for various information from his office, including communications with the state Attorney General. However, she agreed to the new date next week.

The debate will air statewide at 8:30 p.m., as part of a series of debates co-sponsored by the Idaho Press Club and the League of Women Voters of Idaho.
