RRepub: Amber Is A Contendah

Reagan Repub: By the way, Amber Copeland was the real suprise of the Pachyderm debate. She made one heck of a introduction to North Idaho politics. Even with nerves, she was articulate, informed, personable and funny. I did not think she would be a factor in this race until this morning. Now I am not so sure. She probably did not sway any votes this morning because the Pachyderm club is conservative Steve Adams country, but she sure could give Bruning a run for his money in his base among working and young Democrats and independents in south and midtown Coeur d’Alene. She will make this race interesting.

DFO: If people take the time to meet Amber Copeland and Adam Graves, they might discover some of the new faces bring a lot to the table. I still don't know a thing about Derec Aujay, Annastasia Somontes, and Pat "Mitch" Mitchell, though.

Question: Who will Amber claim votes from -- John Bruning or Steve Adams?
