Denton Darrington To Retire From Idaho Senate

(KTVB) With Sen. Denton Darrington quitting the Senate, his compatriots will have to find somebody else to accuse of having been in the chamber forever. Darrington is the longest-serving Idaho senator in state history, wrapping up 30 years representing a southern Idaho district that’s changed over the years — even as its senator remained the same. The 71-year-old Republican said Friday morning a big reason why he won’t seek re-election in November is because reapportionment put him in the same district as Sen. Dean Cameron of Rupert, his closest Senate friend. Darrington chairs the Judiciary and Rules Committee, where he’s been known as a champion of law enforcement, tough sentencing and issues of the state judiciary. In a tribute on Friday, other senators lauded his service, calling him a “chairman’s chairman.”
