Frasure Begins Sec Of State Run

(Former Idaho senator Evan) Frasure acknowledged that he’s in a crowded race – announced GOP candidates for Secretary of State so far also include Rep. Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale; former Sen. Mitch Toryanski, R-Boise; and Chief Deputy Ada County Clerk Phil McGrane. But he said he likes his chances. Frasure, a former redistricting commissioner, said by his calculations, 43 percent of the Republican primary vote comes from east of Boise, a third comes from Ada and Canyon counties, and 24 percent comes from north of Boise/Betsy Russell (pictured), Eye on Boise.

Question: At this point, which one of the Republican candidates for secretary of state do you favor?

Marty Jeers Redistricter Evan Frasure

JEERS … to former state Sen. Evan Frasure, R-Pocatello (pictured). His launch as co-chairman of Idaho's newly ordained redistricting commission is a visceral reminder of why he's not been missed from public office: He's a partisan mischief-maker who makes Peter Lorre look like a novice. Now he's sitting on the six-member citizens commission - half Democrats, half Republicans - responsible for redrawing Idaho's political map. At Tuesday's inaugural hearing, Frasure all but declared open season on the Democrats: “This is a very partisan event. There's no getting around it. It's political bloodsport”/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you have faith that the Idaho Redistricting Committee, co-chaired by former state Sen. Evan Frasure, will do what's best for Idaho residents not the Idaho Republican Party?
