Grant: Only One Way To Go For Idaho D’s

Larry Grant: Nope, DFO, no obituary (for Idaho Democrats), but I do agree we are on life support. Then again, when you are so far down that the only way is up, it is a good time to assess what it is you are about. There are plenty of good Dems out there who are not afraid to say so. And, yes, that means we probably will not get elected in most of Idaho, but that doesn't mean we quit. I figure we need to start acting like the minority party we are, calling out the majority whenever appropriate, holding their feet to the fire. I firmly believe that the majority of folks in Idaho are not as conservative as much of our legislature and, in the end, democracy works, but not without people willing to do the work to make it so.

Question: Is the Idaho Legislature more conservative that the people of Idaho?
