In my Sunday column this week, I write about how two of the three incumbents in Idaho's top races this year have declined to face their challengers in face-to-face debates. That's not unprecedented, but one of the two, first-term GOP Rep. Russ Fulcher, sharply criticized then-Gov. Butch Otter in 2014 for not agreeing to multiple debates when he challenged him in the gubernatorial primary.

Also in this week's column, another view of the "Rocky" candidacy from Deputy Idaho Secretary of State Jason Hancock. You can read my full column here at idahopress.com (subscription required), or pick up today's Sunday/Monday edition of the Idaho Press.
