    Yes, a classic moment in Idaho politics. There's actually some savvy politics in the backstory.

    What happens if one of the three nutjobs wins the nomination and not the Governor?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    No, actually taking the attention off the governor and his primary challenger. No one is going to remember who won the debate now. The more candidates there are, the less opportunity for heads-up confrontation between the actual contenders. That obviously benefits the incumbent.
