After reading the Huckleberries Online post re: the cool reception he received from Kootenai County Republicans Tuesday, Paul Amador responded by email. Amador defeated state Rep. Kathy Sims, R-CdA, and is the Republican nominee for her House District 4 seat now:
"As a political candidate, any time I speak at an event I expect to receive serious and challenging questions, irrespective of the particular group or political affiliation of the group. Although I do not expect every member of the Central Committee to agree with me on all issues, I have no doubt that the members of the KCRCC care deeply about the county, state, and country and want to ensure we elect strong representatives for our community. The Central Committee members and leadership have been nothing but proactive in support of my campaign by promoting my candidacy at the recent North Idaho State Fair, many of the local community parades, distributing yard signs, and sending get out the vote postcards to potential voters.
"On another front, Eula from the League of Women Voters did finally return my call today and she is continuing to work to organize a debate. I will keep you in the loop if I have more information."
