Idaho Solons Survives Turkey Blast

Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, and at least four other lawmakers were in Ankara Tuesday when the first deadly bomb attack in four years hit the city. Others on the trip are Senate GOP Caucus Chairman John McGee (pictured), R-Caldwell, and his wife, Hanna; Sen. Joe Stegner, R-Lewiston, and his wife, Deborah; Senate Minority Caucus Chairwoman Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum; and Rep. Donna Pence, D-Gooding, and her husband, Lew. Hill's wife, Julie, also is on the trip. It's possible others are in the delegation, as the trip is not sponsored by the state and information was incomplete Wednesday. Three were killed and at least 34 wounded in the attack in the busy city center/Dan Popkey, Statesman. More here.

Question: Yeah, I know Idaho is dedicated to improving relations with Turkey? But why?
