Who Is Idaho GOP’s Chairman?

Congressman Raul Labrador says he was simply stating the opinion of one of his two parliamentarians when he told the Idaho GOP convention that current officers — including embattled Chairman Barry Peterson — would remain in place for two years if delegates adjourned without action. But Labrador, who chaired the convention that collapsed without action Saturday, also had a second parliamentarian, Idaho Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis of Idaho Falls. Davis said Wednesday he agrees with party lawyer Jason Risch and the general counsel of the Republican National Committee that Peterson no longer holds the office. Davis wasn't present for the adjournment debate/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Do you think the dysfunctional Idaho GOP would run better with or without a chairman?
