Hayes Vs. Wolfinger For Sheriff?

Digger (responding to Fishwife comment that County Clerk Cliff Hayes is eyeing run for sheriff, in making changes in his office): That wouldn’t surprise me either DFO and I don’t even live in CDA. What makes a former police chief qualified to be the county clerk? Not much. But a former police chief who is an incumbent elected official and has made such “sweeping changes” to another county department and can bring that same type of change to the sheriff’s department? Thats money right there.

Question: Would you like to see a GOP primary race between Major Ben Wolfinger, who has already announced for retiring Sheriff Rocky Watson's seat, and County Clerk Cliff Hayes, a former police chief and administrator for city of Post Falls?
