Associated Press

BOISE – Idaho Republican leaders picked a physicist, a former legislator and a political consultant to lead the commission that will square off with Democrats this summer over new state political boundaries.

Lorna Finman, of Rathdrum, former state Sen. Evan Frasure, of Pocatello, and Lou Esposito, of Boise, will represent the GOP on the state redistricting commission.

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.
