I cannot believe Mr. McGee is so cocky in his comments. I wonder if McGee has driven or walked the neighborhoods in Caldwell that are hurting due to GOP policies? Is that the "Republican country" he is talking about? I was in Caldwell and Nampa this past weekend and even I can see that there is a strong class divide that is not helped by the fear politics from the Republicans. I sure hope us Ada Democrats get behind those Democrats in Canyon County. With the youth out there voting...we may see some surprises.

Robert, I agree. I think Sen. McGee may be in for some surprises this fall. He's running unopposed, but many Canyon County races are contested, and there are several great candidates who are really in touch with what their neighbors are living.

The Canyon County Democratic Central Committee meeting is at 7 p.m. the second Monday of each month - that's TONIGHT - at the Canyon County Courthouse, 1115 Albany, Caldwell.

Info on a few candidates has been posted on the Canyon County Dems' website:


I second your sentiments!
While Ada County Dems need to hold current Legislative seats and work to gain in LDs 14, 15, 20 and 21, we still need to do what ever we can to help our counterparts in Canyon County. Don't just sit back, ask what you can do to help.

First thing, pull out your checkbooks! Second thing, in terms of lending a hand, start with your feet. Get on a comfy pair of sneakers and hit the pavement. Shoe leather is what is needed as much as money.

I was at the Canyon County candidate kick off at Nampa's Flying M Garage Saturday. Canyon County Dems have been trudging along and are making headway. The candidates are geared up and ready to work hard. If these candidates are willing to put their names on the ballot, then it's our job to stand behind them. It takes all of us in this together to make change happen to benefit all Idahoans.
