Eye On Boise

Dems’ closure of caucuses ‘a strategic decision’

Here’s a link to my full story at spokesman.com on the Idaho House and Senate Democrats’ decision today to abandon open caucus meetings and instead move all their caucuses behind closed doors. “It was unanimous,” said Senate Minority Leader Kate Kelly, D-Boise. “It was a strategic decision.” House Assistant Minority Leader James Ruchti, D-Pocatello, said, “I think our constituents will certainly weigh in on it, and if they dislike closed caucuses, they’ll have the ability to let us know - they usually do that at the polls.” Majority Republican caucuses in both houses have remained closed.
