One of the first jobs for the Idaho Republican Party's next chairman will be to name a second-in-command. Jonathan Parker, the Idaho Republican Party's executive director, is stepping down in June. Parker will join the Boise law firm Holland and Hart. Parker is not an attorney, and will not provide legal counsel; he will instead work in "government affairs services" for the firm. State chairman Norm Semanko also is stepping down after the GOP convention in June/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.
