Fort Boise: Is This The Best R’s Have?

The two Republican candidates for the Idaho 1st congressional district dropped the gloves in tonight's debate broadcast on public TV and more than anything else, I was left wondering are these really the best two candidates the party could come up with? I guess that would explain why Greg Smith's poll shows 50% support for Democrat Walt Minnick's re-election, and only 20% for "the Republican candidate," in a state where most voters don't need to see anything other than the "R"/Tom von Alten, Fort Boise. More here.

Question: Who would you rather see run as a Republican for the 1st Congressional District seat held by Democrat Walt Minnick?
