After just a year in the post, Idaho Republican Party Executive Director Joshua Whitworth is moving on to take a job working for state Controller Brandon Woolf. Trevor Thorpe, who has served as the party’s political director for the past year and a half and was its state victory director for the 2010 elections, will be the new executive director, starting in July. Thorpe is a Virginia native and BYU graduate; before coming to work for the Idaho GOP in 2010, he interned at the U.S. Department of State.
