  • The validity of the Team Telcom poll released by the Didier campaign was questioned by Jay Leve, editor of SurveyUSA polling. Leve said the 2.5 percent margin of error is “'impossible' with a sample size of 400."[6] According to the Tri-City Herald, "Leve said it would take a sample of 1,500 likely voters in the district to have a margin of error of 2.5 percent. The margin of error on Didier’s poll is likely 5 percent or greater."[6]

Didier was a favorite of the tea party. Regarding the office he stated, "This is way too important to be mismanaged. These lands are not being managed in a husband-like manner. We are not producing optimum revenues for school systems."[10]
