Candidate With Record Drops Out

Canyon County GOP legislative candidate Greg Chaney announced Wednesday that he’ll suspend his campaign, after news surfaced that the candidate, unopposed in the primary, hadn’t revealed his past domestic violence and multiple-bankruptcy record. An initially defensive Chaney said he’d reformed, found God, and he and his third wife now live frugally. The Idaho Press-Tribune reports today that Chaney issued a press release yesterday making the announcement, but it’s already too late to remove his name from the ballot; that deadline was 45 days before the election, and Chaney’s announcement came just 27 days before Idaho’s May 20 primary/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: So what happens if Chaney gets more votes than the write-in candidate in the GOPrimary?
