Eye On Boise

Rammell sells RV, dinosaur, moves to Wyoming

Flamboyant former Idaho gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammell told Eye on Boise this afternoon that after he lost last month's GOP primary for a House seat in District 7, there was no reason not to move to Wyoming and take a high-paying veterinarian job at a livestock auction. “When I lost the race, there was nothing here to hold me,” Rammell said, adding that Wyoming suits his politics better anyway, with its lack of a personal or corporate income tax and its strong stand against wolves. “I probably was too optimistic that I could turn Idaho into Wyoming,” Rammell said. You can read my full story here about Rammell's departure, which was first reported yesterday by the Lewiston Tribune.
