McGee Keeps GOP Caucus Chair Job

Idaho Senate officials say Republican Sen. John McGee, pictured, will keep his position as caucus chairman, the fourth highest ranking post in the GOP controlled chamber. Republican senators met behind closed doors in the Idaho Capitol Wednesday to determine if McGee should retain his leadership post. Last year, McGee pleaded guilty to drunken driving in a plea deal after being arrested in a Boise neighborhood. The Caldwell Republican has apologized for his behavior and is aware of the disappointment expressed by his senate colleagues/John Miller, AP. More here.

Question: Do you agree with this decision?

Nonini To Seek GOP Caucus Post

Lawmakers from around the state, including some newly elected, rolled on buses into the Silver Valley this morning as part of the North Idaho legislative tour, after hearing a presentation from Lt. Gov. Brad Little about the work of the governor’s transportation funding task force. Last night, the legislators held party caucuses, which included an announcement at the House GOP caucus from Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, that he’s running for majority caucus chairman, challenging current Chairman Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly. If Nonini won that spot - elections will happen at the early-December organizational session - he’d have to give up the chairmanship of the House Education Committee/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Would you like to see Nonini become GOP caucus chairman?
