Treasurer Crane Backs Santorum

At Tuesday night's rally in Boise, Crane introduced Santorum and sat behind the presidential candidate on stage at Capital High School. Crane is the first statewide official to endorse anyone other than Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination. Former state Sen. Ric Branch, R-Midvale, warmed up the crowd, saying Santorum caught his eye early in the contest. “I thought, if they ever pay any attention to him his conservatism is going to shine through.” Also on hand in VIP seats were at least four GOP lawmakers: House Education Committee Chairman Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, and GOP Sens. Dan Johnson of Lewiston, Sheryl Nuxoll of Cottonwood and Steve Vick of Dalton Gardens/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
