    State Rep. Shirley Ringo is her name and she recently announced her candidacy.  No website is up yet but as soon as it is, we start firing up the base in Idaho.

    Yeah, I know, Idaho is hostile territory for Democrats but we aren't afraid of conservatives and Tea Party folks, are we?

    At the very best we can utilize Ringo's candidacy to build the Democratic base in Idaho, regardless of the odds.

      ...Ringo CANNOT win if she doesn't try.

      Sure the odds against her are long, but it would be a shame if the 2014 cycle ended up being Year of the Woman 2.5 and she was talked out of the race to "preserve"...something probably not really "preservable."

        And it's good she's announcing early.  It helps to build ground support, whether Ringo wins or not.

        And it's good for the Idaho Democratic Party.  If anything, it's one of those Democratic Parties that's getting absolutely no coverage in national news nor as much attention as say the California Democratic Party, Florida Democratic Party or even the Virginia Democratic Party.

        Fire up the base.  'Nuff said.
