Broadsword To Quit After ‘12 Session

With the ink barely dry on Idaho's redistricting maps, one senator has announced she's leaving following the 2012 session: Joyce Broadsword of Sagle. The four-term Republican was pushed into a district where Broadsword would have faced Republican Sen. Shawn Keough in next May's primary if she'd campaigned again. Broadsword resignation clears the way for Keough to run without opposition from a GOP incumbent. Broadsword had represented voters in District 2, covering Bonner, Kootenai, Benewah and Shoshone counties. With the 2011 redistricting maps that were drawn last Friday, however, Broadsword's home now falls into District 1, reflecting population changes on Idaho's northern panhandle/AP. More here.
