Leaders of Idaho’s Democratic Party picked their next chairman Saturday. Bert Marley of McCammon replaces Larry Kenck, who resigned earlier this year for health reasons.
Marley, 67, is a former teacher and state lawmaker. He lost the lieutenant governor’s race last fall by 30 percentage points. Democrats, in fact, lost all five statewide races.
Marley spoke to KBSX’s Scott Graf Wednesday.
Q: Considering the party’s recent struggles, what interested you in this job?
