Damn. Minnick now? Not that I'll exactly miss him if he's gone.

Minnick has been reaming Labrador with negative ads and Labrador hasn't even been able to respond. Labrador tried to put some ads up on the air but they were taken down for being misleading. I'd honestly expect Minnick to have more than a 10 point lead in north Idaho. No one besides the most ardent teabaggers really knows who Labrador is besides as that "mexi looking guy who likes illegals". His signs are everywhere but no one likes him (this is from my canvassing/phonebanking knowledge).

Expect to see a big divide between Labrador's stomping grounds in Nampa and other Boise suburbs and the rest of the district.

Not sure if you realize this, but Democratic campaigns don't have volunteers canvass or phone bank Republican voters. You're primarily set up to preach to the choir and boost turnout amongst the faithful, not win the hearts of the skeptics.

Minnick is probably my favorite Democrat, but Labrador is one of the best Republicans from a libertarian standpoint running this year, so that's good.

Is the caricature really true that northern Idaho is packed with folks trying to maximize their physical distance from persons of color?

I'm not an idiot, in most states this is true. In Idaho, we phonebank just about everyone and canvass most people (anyone who is not a "Strong Republican" is game). This has everything to do with the fact that there are few Democrats here.

No, the only reason Labrador lost here during the primary is because he's from the Boise suburbs. It's important to remember that the whole state is devoid of minorities except for Natives and areas affected by the housing boom. Oh and agricultural areas, of course. Other than that there are next to none.

I heard a report somewhere some group within the tea party which had previously been backing Minnick, dropped their support of him and endorsed Labrador.

If your talking about the Tea Party Express Minnick rejected their endorsement after some racist emails(I think that was it) came out.
