Idaho Senate To Be More Like House?

All political observers know the election immediately following legislative redistricting leads to colossal turnover in the Capitol. This year, that turnover, combined with a newly closed primary election system and key retirements, could lead to an Idaho Senate that aligns more closely with the House in ideological terms. The changes could come from Senate newcomers who are not fresh faces around the Capitol. A number of lawmakers from the Idaho House, traditionally viewed as more conservative than the Senate, are planning election runs for seats on the other side of the Capitol rotunda/Dustin Hurst (pictured), Idaho Reporter. More here.

Question: Are you ready for and Idaho Senate that reflects the ideology of the Idaho House?
