Dennis: McGee Hurt GOP Legislators

John McGee would have done himself a lot of good had he simply resigned from Senate leadership.  I think somehow this situation has become worse, not better, because of the GOP Caucus meeting last week.   Now, every GOP Senator (perhaps every legislator) has somehow become wrapped in John’s cocoon — and the Senate Democrat Leadership sees this opportunity.  As the press rolled out, following the “Caucus confidence vote”, I believe that it became apparent to a number of GOP senators that they were now perceived to be supporting John, and even comfortable with his behavior — even though they are not/Dennis Mansfield. More here.

Question: Has John McGee become the Idaho Senate equivalent to Rep. Phil Hart — a pariah that hamstrings GOP legislative leadership?
