Definitely saw this one coming!

So we'll have a choice between a very reasonable Republican and a bat poop crazy one. I can't wait to see what the Democrats will do. As a conservative, this will be akin to being asked to vote for Hillary to avoid Trump. Will they vote for Little to keep McGoochan out? My thoughts are that they will see it as an opportunity to take advantage of a split republican vote and get a Democrat in office, which will result in a win for the "gooch". Ouch. We've been waiting for a really good reason to move.

How will getting a Democrat in office be a win for McGeachin?

I’m backing Ammon Bundy. In Idaho, you can’t be too crazy.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Good question. Does she get to keep her current job if she loses the Governorship race?

Stop worrying about what if. If you can support Little, do so. If it comes down to the crazy person vs. Some Random Democrat, vote for the better of the two and don’t be like Dems who couldn’t vote for HRC because they stomped their feet and demanded perfection.

VOTE, regardless. Keep moving the peg forward and please do not sit out in faux disgust. You WIN whenever crazy people are kept from office, even if it doesn’t seem like it in the short run.

I know what I'm going to do, no question, but what will others do? It will be interesting. We've been nicely spared the Gooch types until now. Idaho hasn't been crazy at all until recently.

The election of Gooch will be an unintended result of the Democrats fielding a hopelessly bizarre progressive candidate. They could stop Gooch by voting for Little, but would they vote Republican to stop bat-poop crazy? I couldn't vote for Hillary, so I can understand their difficulty, I guess, because I think that was a similar situation for me.

Look next door at Jon Tester and get someone like him.

If the Democrats chose someone more like Cecil Andrus, who was a Democrat and would have been declared King of Idaho if possible, but like I said, they'll choose someone "weird". It's like they think they are in Portland.
