From the beginning of my campaign, I have made it clear that my goal is to advance the cause of freedom and liberty and to put an end to the socialist tyrannical government that is currently controlling Idaho. This tyranny is nothing short of a liberal, RINO cabal led by Governor Brad Little who has repeatedly violated the Constitution, infringed upon Idahoans most basic rights, completely disregarded Idaho law, acted like a complete despot, and has done irreparable harm to thousands of Idahoans.
The surest way to defeat Brad Little in the Primary election and restore liberty and prosperity to Idaho, is to unify the Conservative electorate to get behind ONE Constitutional candidate, though right now there are multiple candidates posing in the race.
It has been proposed to have a series of debates between the most prominent candidates, specifically Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin, Ed Humphreys and myself—with an invitation made to Governor Brad Little, as well. I am in full support of such an idea and will gladly attend any debates between us.
It has come to my attention that Ed Humphreys is likewise willing to participate in these debates but Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin is refusing to attend unless Brad Little is also present. Since everyone knows that Brad Little will NEVER expose himself by participating in such a debate, Janice McGeachin’s condition requiring the participation of Brad Little is tantamount to an outright refusal to debate both Ed Humphreys and I.
I strongly urge Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin to engage in a fruitful and productive debate with both Ed Humphreys and myself so Idaho voters can understand the difference between the candidates and can make the most informed decision as to who they choose to support in the primary election. This is true representative government in action, and I humbly request that Mrs. McGeachin participate.
