Sims saw Voters Guide as ‘threat’

In an article about a House District 4 debate before the Reagan Republicans Thursday, Brian Walker/Coeur d'Alene Press reports in part:

(Challenger Paul Amador) said he chose to answer a candidate questionnaire in the Press Voters Guide that asked the question along with others such as whether candidates support raising the minimum wage, increasing gun rights, abortion rights, Medicaid coverage and education spending while Sims and some other candidates did not. "They're important issues, and candidates should be forthcoming," Amador said. ... Sims said she didn't answer The Press questionnaire because it was a "threat." "Those 12 questions are difficult for most Republicans to answer," she said. "My answer to The Press was that the answer to all your questions is in the Republican platform. I support the Republican platform." Amador countered: "I don't' see how the questions were liberal. I don't know why you'd be embarrassed to say what your viewpoints are." Full article here.
