Legislative comeback?

Gino White was one of the Legislature’s youngest members when he represented the Silver Valley from 1987 to 1994. Now, White’s making another bid for a comeback from Boise.

The Democrat ran two years ago against moderate Republican Sen. Cecil Ingram of Boise, getting 46.4 percent of the vote to Ingram’s 53.6 percent.

Now, Ingram has retired, and Democratic Rep. David Langhorst is running for his seat, facing Republican Clinton Miner. That left Langhorst’s House seat up for grabs in this swing district, and Republican Jana Kemp won a three-way GOP primary with 43 percent of the vote, defeating former Helen Chenoweth spokesman Graham Paterson and former Libertarian Michael Gollaher.

Now, the Democrat in that race, Don McMurrian Jr., has dropped out, and White has jumped in.
