Douglas County was one of four counties in Oregon where voters got to decide if they are interested in re-jiggering state boundaries and joining Idaho.

Douglas County said no, and so did Wallowa County, but Jefferson and Union voted to explore the issue further. That's half a loaf for Mike McCarter, the creator of the idea of "Greater Idaho."

We catch up with McCarter and his vision for an Idaho that would eventually include parts of both Oregon and California.
