Eye On Boise

‘We don’t have a lady this year’

House Republicans generally praised all their leadership candidates last night after the votes were taken for remaining civil. Rep. Marge Chadderdon, R-Coeur d’Alene, complimented the GOP leadership hopefuls for remaining “gentlemen,” then added wistfully, “I can say ‘gentlemen.’ We don’t have a lady this year.” Former Majority Caucus Chairwoman Julie Ellsworth, R-Boise, who was the only female legislator in House GOP leadership, lost to a Democrat in last month’s election. On the Democratic side, however, House Minority Leader Wendy Jaquet retained her post unopposed. See the full story on last night’s leadership contests in today’s Spokesman-Review.
