Idaho redistricters adjourned until 8 a.m. Tuesday, leaving just a few hours before that day’s 5 p.m. deadline to draw up Idaho’s new political boundaries.
The best hope for a compromise may be Republican commissioner Lorna Finman and Democratic panelist Julie Kane, who have been working together on a plan.
But there’s no guarantee, especially with GOP commissioner Lou Esposito and Democrat George Moses still feuding.
During Monday’s session, Esposito called a Moses’ proposal for Ada County “greed at its worst.”
Meanhile, Democratic co-chairman Allen Andersen presented a map showing Idaho’s Democratic-influenced areas in isolated white patches, surrounded by a vast red sea to reflect Idaho’s GOP dominance.
Andersen made this plea: Leave the white Democratic.
GOP chairman Evan Frasure said that Andersen was acknowledging the obvious: Idaho is a Republican state.
