Brown's lit is full of bumper sticker madness like "Gun Control ... is hitting your target," "TRIDENT ... when you care enough to send the very best," "Nuke their ass, take their gas," and "Keep the queens out of the Marines."

Also running in the GOP primary is former Air Force "operations analyst" and Naval flight surgeon Allan Salzberg, whose daughter, Debbie Holmes ran for Congress in the Second CD as a Democrat two years ago. Salzberg is a doctor in Boise.

No Democrat has yet stepped forward to challenge Walt "Right for Idaho" Minnick.
