Tax Commission Needs Non-Repub

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter is looking for someone who's not a Republican to serve on the state Tax Commission. The commission has a vacancy due to the departure of Commissioner David Langhorst to become the new chief of the state Department of Parks & Recreation. By law, no more than two of the four commissioners can be of the same party; current commission Chairman Rich Jackson and Commissioner Ken Roberts both are Republicans, while Commissioner Tom Katsilometes is a former Democratic county commissioner/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Are there enough Democrats in the state to find one qualified enough to fill this spot? (Before Sisyphus' head explodes ... I'm just joking. I know there's more than one Democrat in Idaho because I saw several manning the Democrat Party booth at the fair last night)
