Democrats are bleary-eyed in the state Capitol this morning, after many boarded a bus early yesterday afternoon for Pocatello and didn’t return until close to 2 a.m. The Democratic Party was holding its Stallings Banquet, with U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the Senate minority leader, as keynote speaker.
Sen. Elliot Werk, D-Boise, was in his JFAC seat bright and early at 8 a.m., but had hardly slept. “It was a good crowd – it was good,” he said of the Pocatello event.
