Idaho R’s Drop Candidate Screening

Idaho Republicans have dropped a proposed rule change to let party committees screen candidates for primary elections and select just two for each office, but they'll consider plenty of other big changes when they gather Friday in Moscow for their annual state central committee meeting, including doing away with their May presidential primary entirely. Also on tap: An array of resolutions on everything from kicking the EPA out of the Silver Valley, to studying a gold currency to replace the “failing” dollar, and to an “Idaho as China-Beachhead Withdrawal Resolution,” declaring that GOP Gov. Butch Otter's “Project 60” trade-building initiative is a bid by the Chinese to take over Idaho's sovereignty/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: And you thought Idaho GOP leadership had no restraint?
