Idaho Democrats Gathering In Boise

Idaho Democrats are getting ready to gather in Boise for the party's 2012 convention. Democratic Party Chairman Larry Grant says the agenda for the three-day event includes selecting delegates to attend the party's national convention later this summer and hammering out a platform. Top Democratic officials, legislative and congressional candidates and party representatives from all 44 counties are expected to attend and help shape the state party's plans for the next two years. Friday's keynote speaker is Jimmy Farris, a former NFL player who is running against Republican Raul Labrador in Idaho's 1st Congressional District. On Saturday, former state Sen. Nicole LeFavour will talk about her race against GOP Rep. Mike Simpson in the 2nd Congressional District/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Will this be the beginning of a revival of the Idaho Democrat Party? Or an exercise in futility?
