Surprise GOP nominee for state schools chief Sherri Ybarra discussed her campaign with Idaho Education News, and said she plans to maintain the grassroots focus and independent approach that she said were key to her May 20 primary victory. “I took a different approach and I got a different result,” Ybarra told Idaho EdNews reporter Kevin Richert. “I made it very clear that I was a different kind of campaigner. And I meant what I said.”
Richert reports that Ybarra has been working with Dan Goicoechea, state Controller Brandon Woolf’s chief deputy and one of Ybarra’s few campaign contributors during the primary; you can read Richert's full report here.
