Denney, backers tout GOP resolution; Toryanski announces supporters

Idaho Rep. Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale, who is running for Idaho Secretary of State, called a Statehouse news conference today, where, joined by 10 backers, he announced that the Republican National Committee on Jan. 24 approved a resolution in support of “western states taking back public lands.” Denney said, “It’s great to have a national organization that is getting behind this effort.” He billed the announcement as “new development regarding the transfer of public lands.” The 10 GOP House members who joined him included Reps. Batt, Barrett, Boyle, Barbieri, Crane, Gestrin, Harris, Mendive, Monks and Palmer.

Meanwhile, another GOP Secretary of State candidate, former Sen. Mitch Toryanski, R-Boise, announced his “Idaho campaign committee,” with Freda Cenarrusa, widow of the late longtime Secretary of State Pete Cenarrusa, as honorary chair. Toryanski’s group includes GOP Sens. Bair, Brackett, Hagedorn, Heider, McKenzie, Patrick, and Siddoway, Rep. Stephen Hartgen, retired Sen. Shirley McKague and retired Rep. Leon Smith.

Other announced candidates for Secretary of State include Republicans Evan Frasure and Phil McGrane and Democratic Rep. Holli Woodings of Boise.
