ID Sen. to continue push to disqualify primary foe



HAYDEN, Idaho (AP) _ A state senator from northern Idaho says
he's not giving up his push to get his primary election challenger
tossed off the ballot.

Hayden Lake Republican Sen. Mike Jorgenson is facing a challenge
in next month's GOP primary from Steven Vick, a former Montana
lawmaker who now lives in Dalton Gardens.

Jorgenson, filed a complaint with the Secretary of State last
week alleging that Vick is unqualified for the ballot.

Jorgenson cites Vick's 2006 move from Idaho to Montana, where
Vick switched his voter registration and campaigned for a seat on
Montana's Public Service Commission.

But Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa told the
Spokesman-Review that Vick has lived back in Idaho for at least one
year, making him a qualified voter.

Jorgenson says he is prepared to fight his case in court.
