Idaho GOP convention degenerating into ‘fiasco’

After hours of lots of dissension and contention, the Idaho Republican Party convention has broken down, after divided votes to refuse to seat the delegations from three counties, Ada, Bannock and Power. Now, there’s a push to adjourn the convention – without doing the business it came to town to do, adopting a platform, electing a chairman, passing resolutions and so forth. Officials are puzzling over rules; Lt. Gov. Brad Little said the party is mandated to hold a convention, not to elect a chairman. If the chairman’s term expires, the central committee could fill the position.

Rep. Paul Romrell told Idaho EdNews reporter Clark Corbin, “This is a fiasco.”
