GOP candidate Chaney waffles on withdrawing

The GOP House candidate in Canyon County who withdrew prior to the election after his past legal and financial problems came to light – but too late to get his name off the ballot – now says he’s reconsidering his options after tallying more votes than two write-in candidates. Greg Chaney told the Idaho Statesman, "I'm looking at every possible angle at this point. I have reached out to the two write-in candidates and have let them know that I am still considering my options, and I have been in contact with party leadership."

In April, Chaney said he was suspending his campaign and would "neither actively seek nor accept the Republican nomination." Statesman reporter Cynthia Sewell has a full report here.
