Redistricters seek ‘common ground’

Idaho's bipartisan citizen redistrict commission convened briefly this morning, then took a break to allow for some “sidebar conversations.” Before the break, GOP Co-Chairman Evan Frasure said he's hoping when the panel comes back it can “move the ball forward today in a significant way.” During the break, Frasure sat down with Democratic Co-Chairman Allen Andersen and went over some explanations of various district lines. Said GOP Commissioner Lou Esposito, “We are trying to find some common ground and a way to move this process forward.” That same phrase, “common ground,” wafted over from Frasure and Andersen's conversation.

After the break, Frasure said the commission will return to L-46, a new legislative district plan Democratic commissioners submitted yesterday that Republican commissioners hailed as a sign of progress.
