Grant Wants To Be State Demo Chair

Former congressional nominee Larry Grant says he's likely to run for Idaho Democratic Party chairman next month. Outgoing Chairman Keith Roark is not expected to seek another term. "What we Democrats need to do is get all back on the same page, dust ourselves off and move forward," Grant said Tuesday. Grant said he began considering the race after the November election, in which Democrats lost their only major post -- 1st District Congress -- and five seats in the Idaho House. "My objective is to get those seats back in the Legislature," Grant said. "And, in 2012, President Obama will be on the ticket and that will be interesting"/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Larry Grant, on Facebook: "Okay, the cat's out of the bag, or should I say, the donkey is out of the barn. I have decided to run for Chair of the Idaho Democratic Party. I was going to wait to make it public until I had a chance to talk to more people, but the press caught up with the story first."

Question: Would Larry Grant be a good state chairman for the Idaho Democratic Party? Or are Idaho D's so beat up after the last election that no one can bring them back from the dead?
