1 Year Ago: Hello, Toby

On Feb. 27, 2014, we were discussing this post on Huckleberries Online:

And the answer is -- Toby Schindelbeck. The question: Who is the candidate that the Rally Right/UCNI wing of the Kootenai County GOP will field to run against state Rep. Luke Malek, R-Coeur d'Alene? In a Coeur d'Alene Press ad today, Bob Pedersen's Rally Right organization invited people to come hear from Schindelbeck at a meeting scheduled for Nate's Pizza, H41/Mullan, at 6 p.m. Monday. On his toby4Idaho.com blog, Schindelbeck is described as "a principled conservative leader." He goes on the attack against Malek immediately by pointing out that the freshman legislator supported Obamacare. You can read the campaign material (under news/blog) here. I suspect that Schindelbeck hasn't been in Coeur d'Alene long because he ran for the Chico (Calif.) City Council in 2012. More here.

Question: Do you think Toby Schindelback has a future in elected politics in Idaho?
