Bill Sali Beat ‘Em Both

At a congressional forum in 2006 in Post Falls (from left): Robert Vasquez, Sheila Sorensen, Norm Semanko, Bill Sali, Dave Olson, Cecil Kelly, Keith Johnson, Andy Hedden-Nicely and Skip Brandt. Larry Grant missed to forum. (SR file photo: Jesse Tinsley)

Idaho's current Democratic and Republican party chairmen shared a stage for the first time today at the Boise City Club, and some sparks did fly. The two started off with a shared experience: “We both lost to Bill Sali in 2006,” said GOP Chairman Norm Semanko, who lost to Sali in the 1st District GOP primary that year, while current Democratic Chairman Larry Grant fell to Sali in the general election.  “Norm and I did both lose,” Grant said, “and you might conclude from that that the penalty for losing a congressional race is to become the chairman of the party”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Who would win a WWF cage match between Norm Semanko and Larry Grant?
