If the Democrats were serious about taking back the Senate, they wouldn't let things like this happen. Is there a great chance to beat Crapo? Not really. But the fact of the matter is that this just lets the GOP shift all resources to other, compeative races.

This is just complte stupidity.

Democrat misses deadline to face Crapo

Wayne Hoffman
The Idaho Statesman

Democrats may have made history Friday, fielding no candidate to challenge Republican Mike Crapo in the U.S. Senate. A Democrat missed the filing deadline by a few seconds, leaving Crapo unopposed in his bid for a second six-year term.

The party, which contends it´s on the rebound after years of being resigned to irrelevance, mustered candidates for just 45 of the 105 legislative seats up for election this year. Even Sen. John Goedde of Coeur d´Alene, the only Republican in a district with two Democratic state representatives, escaped a Democratic challenger. Freshman Republican Cliff Bayer of Boise, who has never had his name on the ballot (he was appointed last year to fill a vacancy) won´t face a Democrat.

Democratic Party Chairwoman Carolyn Boyce — who has presided over a near doubling of the party´s representation in the state Legislature — contends the party is focusing its efforts on winnable races, instead of filling holes on the ballot.

“We have great candidates running, and we´ll pick up some seats,” Boyce said. Congressmen Mike Simpson and C.L. “Butch” Otter will face challenges from former state Sen. Lin Whitworth and Boise businesswoman Naomi Preston, respectively.

Friday was the deadline for candidates to file to run in the May 25 primary. Winners of the party primaries will face off Nov. 2.
