1st District Congressman Raul Labrador, who is headed to Moscow now to chair the state GOP convention, said he's made his choice for parliamentarian at the convention: Cornel Rasor. The position is key because the parliamentarian helps decide disputes over rules, and there are plenty this year, including the pending challenge to seating the entire Ada County delegation. Rasor, like Labrador, sides with the party's tea party wing.
