Grant to step down as Idaho Dems chair

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The chairman of the Idaho Democratic Party is stepping down. Larry Grant announced this week this week that he won't seek another term, sending the state's minority party searching for a new leader. Grant was elected to the post in 2011 and in his announcement he touted his efforts to recruit an effective party staff and help field a cast of competitive candidates in the 2012 election. Grant says he didn't achieve all he set out to do, but he says he's proud of the accomplishments during his tenure. His term ends next month. The party will hold an election Feb. 23 during its state central committee meeting. Last year, Democrats held on to their 20 seats in the Idaho House and Senate and helped defeat a package of education laws approved in 2011.
