In Idaho, a Republican gubernatorial debate has gone viral. Governor Butch Otter insisted that two fringe candidates โ€” Walt Bayes and Harley Brown โ€” be allowed to join him and State Senator Russ Fulcher in the debate.

Those candidates ended up stealing the show for their bizarre and even offensive comments.

The primary election is Tuesday of next week.
