There have been open primaries in Idaho for 36 years.
But this is a dark red Conservative state. I doubt there are enough Democrats to pull off a scam like that.
What gave Raul Labrador the candidacy over a tea party favorite was a last minute expose of the opposing candidate who lied about his military record and a few other things. I wouldn't be surprised if the Democratic party didn't dig that up as Labrador's campaign is not as well funded as Walt -the Gimmick-Minnick.
