Groans, cheers, parliamentary maneuvers and delays are about all that’s come out of the Idaho GOP state convention so far this morning, where it took an hour and a half just to go through the opening roll call. Various procedural disputes are hanging up the process of getting to the reports of the convention’s four committees and the question of whether delegates and committee assignments are valid. At one point, the AP reports, convention Chairman Raul Labrador implored the delegates, “We’re going to be here all day if we do this.”
