Republican Sen. Joe Stegner of Lewiston will be hanging around the Idaho Capitol for many years to come. He just won't need to go back to voters every two years to punch his ticket.
Stegner was announced late Friday as the University of Idaho's new lobbyist, beating out nearly 100 candidates. U of I president Duane Nellis announced that Stegner would become his special assistant for state government relations on Thursday, Dec. 1.
Stegner is an alum of the U of I.
