Idaho GOP Honors Hayes, Jacobson

Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes and county GOP Central Committee Chairman Tina Jacobson were among those honored by the Idaho Republican Party and installed into the GOP Hall of Fame at the presidential straw poll in Boise Friday. Hayes was named "Outstanding Republican Administrator" and Jacobson "Outstanding County Chair." Bill at explains what happened with Hayes, who has been in office only 18 months and unsuccessfully pushed for a controversial move to cut the number of voting precincts from 71 to 44. Seems Idaho Republicans noted in the presentation to Hayes that he's "… brought back confidence in the integrity of our election process.” Also winning an award from Kootenai County was Melanie Vanderfeer "Outstanding Precinct Committeeperson." You can read Dan Popkey's story prior to the event here.

Question: Do you believe Cliff Hayes has brought "back confidence in the integrity of our election process"?
