Semanko: As red as Idaho is, Wyoming has us beat

Here's an interesting tidbit shared by Idaho Republican Party Chairman Norm Semanko on IPTV's "Dialogue" program last night: Despite the GOP sweep in this year's elections, Idaho is no longer the "most-Republican" state as measured by Republican dominance in its top offices and Legislature. Wyoming takes that prize. Wyoming, like Idaho, has its entire congressional delegation and all its statewide offices held by Republicans. The difference: While Idaho has now jumped up to 80 percent GOP in its state Legislature, Wyoming is at 84 percent.
