Rep. Marge Chadderdon, R-Coeur d'Alene, says she's not planning to seek a fifth term in the state House of Representatives, so the fact that a proposed new legislative district plan unveiled today puts her in the same district as Reps. Phil Hart, R-Athol, and Vito Barbieri, R-Dalton Gardens, wouldn't force any face-offs among incumbents. Chadderdon said she made her decision back when she was sworn in for her fourth term last December; she subsequently ended up missing the 2011 session while undergoing cancer treatment, and her daughter, Julie Chadderdon, filled in for her. “That isn't the reason I'm not running,” Chadderdon said today. “I had made up my mind regardless.” Her daughter, also, has made it “very, very clear” she doesn't want to run, Chadderdon said, “ever, ever”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Hypothetical Question: Which 2 of these 3 would you pick, if forced to do so: Marge Chadderdon, Phil Hart, and Vito Barbieri?
