Thanks for the comment(s).

I distill it down to this: either Parties mean something or they do not. A candidate can't have it both ways...uneless he/she lives in Idaho!

A lawsuit similar to the one just filed by the Idaho Republican Party is pending in the 5th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. If the 5th Circuit rules against the open primary, the Idaho GOP will be able to cite that decision in its case.

Here's my take on this topic.

I think I understand why some do not want closed primaries in Idaho. I believe that the Democrats would like a say in who they are going to have to vote for/against. Let's face it, any Democratic candidate does not stand much of a chance of election in Idaho. So, in order to be able to participate in the process, open primaries are the only way to have a say. Right, wrong or indifferent, there it is. And it will remain that way as long as one party has so much more pull and power over the others.
