Why Crapo’s not on Romney list: ‘Doesn’t like to tell people how to vote’

Here's why Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo isn't among the Idaho GOP leaders on Mitt Romney's Idaho steering committee list: “He's not on that letter for Romney because he doesn't generally endorse,” said Crapo's spokesman, Lindsay Nothern. “He wasn't very active in the last go-round with McCain. He's not likely to be on anything in the near future. That's just his style. He's not one that gets in real early.”

Added Nothern, “His rationale is he doesn't like to tell people how to vote, basically. … I would expect he'll sit out for quite a while, if not the whole election.” Crapo wasn't at the Romney fundraiser in Boise today; he's in Washington, D.C. You can read my full story here at
