Denney Eyes Secretary Of State Run

Former Idaho House speaker and current state Rep. Lawerence Denney is positioning for a possible challenge to GOP Secretary of State Ben Ysursa. Denney filed the paperwork for a potential run, naming a political treasurer, the Associated Press reported Friday. Denney, R-Midvale, says he will announce his decision after gauging whether he can raise money for a campaign. He isn’t talking about the motivation for a potential challenge. “I’m not prepared to talk about that yet,” Denney told the AP. “When we do announce, I’ll let you know”/Kevin Richert, The EDge, IdahoED News.

DFO: Idaho has had two terrific public servants to hold the Secretary of State's office back-to-back: Pete Cenarrusa and his long-time, righthand man, Ben Ysursa. I see no need to change horses.

Question: Do you want Lawerence Denney to run for secretary of state?
