Risch: Debate already

As a Republican, enough is enough. Jim Risch, just like two years ago, is refusing to debate his challengers on Idaho Public Television, a statewide audience. He accepts only KTVB 's debate after getting their promise that he will receive the questions in advance is unacceptable. His arrogance that Idahoans are beneath him is outrageous.

Has he forgotten that he serves the people of Idaho? And now we hear again that Bill Sali is refusing to release his campaign contributions? Same tactic he used two years ago running for Congress. Is Sali concerned that we will find out again that he is supported by out of state interests? Are we stupid Idahoans? Republicans and Independents, I ask you: Is this what we want for Idaho? Two candidates who think they are not accountable to us? Two candidates that truly don't care about us Idahoans and think they will get our votes because they are Republicans?

Let's tell them both that we Idahoans are independent thinking, will choose the best candidate regardless of party affiliation, and will take a stand to bring back democracy and balanced government. I hope to hear from other Republicans and Independents.
