“I have always been Republican. Rumors to the contrary are false. I served as a constituent representative for Sen. Dirk Kempthorne while a student at NIC. I also was a volunteer campaign coordinator for Phill Batt for Latah County (I was a Kootenai County resident) while I attended the University of Idaho. I assisted Congresswoman Helen Chenoweth's campaign. I helped organize a fundraiser for Butch Otter's campaign for Lt. governor. In 1994, I briefly filed as a candidate against Rep. Tom Dorr but withdrew after I was accepted to law school. I had been recruited by Kootenai GOP Grand Dame Ruthie Johnson”/Herb Huseland, Bay Views. More here.
