Idaho Republican Chairman Keeps Position Two More Years

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho Republican Party advisory committee meeting turned combative Thursday while members discussed who held the chairmanship.

Factions inside the Idaho Republican Party have spent the past week fiercely debating who holds the seat ever since the chaotic GOP convention last week ended with no new chair elected. After nearly two hours of yelling and talking over one another, the committee concluded that Chairman Barry Peterson’s term was extended for another two years.

However, two opinions from the GOP general counsel and the Republican National Committee argue that Peterson is no longer the chairman. They say the state central committee needs to appoint new party officers. GOP general counsel Jason Risch said he declined to attend Thursday’s meeting because it would have validated Peterson as the current party chairman.
