Our own private Idaho (BR)
Good morning; holy crap!

Reported today on Political Wire:
Despite it’s [sic] deep-red nature, Democrats are slightly ahead in Idaho’s gubernatorial and 1st congressional district race[.]
Of course, at least in the ID-1 congressional race, it doesn't hurt that Republican candidate Bill Sali was once described thusly by fellow GOPer and Speaker of the Idaho House of Representatives Bruce Newcombe:
"That idiot is just an idiot. He doesn’t have one ounce of empathy in his whole fricking body. And you can put that in the paper."
(Thanks to Left in the West)
You can help Larry Grant, the Democrat, live the seemingly improbable dream and carve out a blue niche in Idaho at MyDD's ActBlue. I already have.
