Rammell Wants To Eradicate Wolves

Rex Rammell is coming to Idaho County, where he aims to eradicate wolves and restore big game populations. Rammell, who lost to Gov. C.L. (Butch) Otter in the Republican primary last spring, and also lost a bid to win the U.S. Senate seat now held by Jim Risch in 2008, said he plans to move from the Idaho Falls area to the county next month and rent a home in Harpster. He will be in Grangeville Wednesday pushing a plan to wrest wolf management authority from the federal government and give it to the county. Rammell wants the county commission to pass an emergency ordinance giving Sheriff Doug Giddings authority to kill wolves/Erik Barker, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Would looney-tune Rammell have a chance of winning a legislative seat if he moved to House District 3 (now represented by Phil Hart, Steve Vick, Vito Barbieri)?
