One of the nation’s weakest Democratic parties says it’s getting stronger, in part because of new caucuses representing business, youth, women, veterans, Latinos, Mormons and LGBTA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender). On Friday, the party begins a nine-city string of caucus meetings that run through July 27. “The Idaho Democratic Party is growing and these caucuses are bringing new energy,” says a state party news release which invites people to attend and join local caucuses. Starting Friday at 5 p.m. at the University of Idaho, caucus meetings will be held in Moscow, Coeur d’Alene, Plummer, Lewiston, Twin Falls, Hailey, Idaho Falls, Pocatello and Boise/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.

Question: Do you think the Idaho Democratic Party is getting stronger?
Today I’m offering ONE LUCKY READER the opportunity of a lifetime. I’m talking about a chance to ride shotgun in my 1967 Oldsmobile Vista Guzzler as we travel to wild and crazy … North Idaho. That’s right. At a mutually acceptable date, we will leave Spokane for this less-regulated land where Republicans outnumber the wood ticks. First stop is the bawdy hamlet of Stateline, where we will skip the strip joint and focus instead on a certain convenience store where I will buy my contest winner a jumbo box of that “banned in nanny Washington” Cascade dish soap. Then it’s off to Post Falls for a cheap booze run. (Sorry. Due to editor concerns, the winner must spring for his or her own hooch.) Once we’re loaded with suds and liquor, we will aim for Coeur d’Alene, where we will gorge on Hudson’s hamburgers. (Yep, I’m buying. Just don’t embarrass me by trying to order fries, or you’ll find yourself walking back to Spokane)Doug Clark, SR. More here.
