Todd Banducci, left, chats with Paul Matthews after listening to Editor Mike Patrick of the Coeur d'Alene Press speak at the North Idaho Pachyderm Club at Jonesy's in downtown Coeur d'Alene. Both Banducci and Matthews ran for seats on the North Idaho College Board of Trustees. Banducci beat incumbent Mic Armon, while Matthews lost to incumbent Judy Meyer.

Question: Has someone analyzed the differences in the campaigns involving the North Idaho College races involving Banducci-Armon and Matthews-Meyer? What did Meyer do that Armon didn't? What did Banducci do that Matthews didn't (other than skip both candidates forums)?
