The Idaho Democratic Party ended its state convention on a high note Saturday, accomplishing all it set forth to do while in Moscow - and unanimously. Nearly 200 delegates and alternates approved without a single dissenting vote or comment to approve the third and final draft of the party's 2014 platform before concluding the state meeting. "We learned a lot, we heard a lot, we've accomplished a lot," said Larry Kenck, Idaho Democratic Party chairman. What delegates need to do next, Kenck said, is spread the platform's message by talking with friends, family, neighbors -- even the media -- to tell them what the party stands for, its values and why they each became Democrats. "That's how we're going to grow," he said. "That's how we're going to get it done. That's how we're going to get Democrats elected. That's why I'm proud of you"/Elizabeth Rudd, Lewiston Tribune.
