Finman owns a business that manufactures radio amplifiers and jamming devices that the military use to disable roadside bombs.

Frasure, a real estate agent, served from 1993 to 2002 in the state Senate.

And Esposito has advised politicians including U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador and former U.S. Rep. Bill Sali.

Democrats already named their picks: former state lawmaker Allen Andersen, of Pocatello, Nez Perce Tribe lawyer Julie Kane, of Lapwai, and Boise union coordinator George Moses.
