Rod Beck will challenge Idaho GOP chairman Kirk Sullivan at the party convention in June. Boise water lobbyist and former U.S. House candidate Norm Semanko had considered a run but will only stand for election if Sullivan is doomed. Beck: “I was more than happy to support Norm Semanko. But if he’s not a candidate, I’m going to make sure there is a candidate in opposition. We’re going to have a vote, and I expect to win.” Miller, AP in The Olympian.
