Meridian Senator Chosen to Replace McGee as GOP Caucus Chair

by

In the wake of John McGee's resignation from the Idaho Senate following allegations of sexual misconduct, GOP senators have turned to Meridian Sen. Russ Fulcher to replace McGee as their new majority caucus chairman.

The 27 members of the Senate GOP caucus met behind closed doors this morning and emerged with Fulcher as their new leader.

McGee still faces an investigation by the Idaho Attorney General's Office and Idaho State Police following last week's shocker that a Senate attache had accused the Caldwell lawmaker of sexual harassment.
