Popkey: Otter recruiting candidates for new GOP party chairman

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter is recruiting candidates to replace Norm Semanko as Idaho's GOP party chairman, reports Idaho Statesman reporter Dan Popkey; Semanko defeated Otter's favored candidate, then-Chairman Kirk Sullivan, in 2008. “I was roundly criticized by all you guys that I couldn't control my own party and I was probably the only governor in the United States that didn't have his choice as party chairman,” Otter told Popkey. “I've been able to work with Norm, but you know, I just don't want that to happen again.” You can read Popkey's full post here.
