Jensen says he never signed on to former rival Ybarra's campaign team

Unsuccessful GOP state school superintendent hopeful Randy Jensen, who placed second in the four-way GOP primary, falling to Sherri Ybarra, says he never authorized Ybarra to list him as a member of her campaign team, nor has he endorsed either candidate in the general-election race between Ybarra and Democrat Jana Jones. Clark Corbin, reporter for Idaho Education News, reports today that Ybarra had Jensen listed as part of her five-member “campaign committee” on her website.

Jensen told Corbin, “I never intended my name to be on anyone’s website or endorsement list. I told Jones the same thing.” Corbin reports that Jensen said he talked with Ybarra and she agreed to remove his name from her website; however, as of mid-day today, it remained listed there under “Meet the Sherri Ybarra Campaign Team.” You can read Corbin’s full report here.
