Idaho GOP chairman to step down

Yates, an Idaho Falls businessman and former aid to Vice President Dick Cheney, took over as chair in 2014 during a chaotic battle over control of the party. Republicans have since pointed to Yates as being a key player in unifying the party.

Yates didn’t specify which political office he is considering in Monday’s announcement, but he has previously stated he is pondering running for lieutenant governor in 2018.
