Nonini To Seek GOP Caucus Post

Lawmakers from around the state, including some newly elected, rolled on buses into the Silver Valley this morning as part of the North Idaho legislative tour, after hearing a presentation from Lt. Gov. Brad Little about the work of the governor’s transportation funding task force. Last night, the legislators held party caucuses, which included an announcement at the House GOP caucus from Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, that he’s running for majority caucus chairman, challenging current Chairman Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly. If Nonini won that spot - elections will happen at the early-December organizational session - he’d have to give up the chairmanship of the House Education Committee/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Would you like to see Nonini become GOP caucus chairman?
