Fulcher, Denney Pick Subs, Campaign

Two legislators who are running for statewide office missed most or all of the past week of lawmaking, appointing subs to serve for them while they campaigned. Rep. Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale, who is running for secretary of state, named Howard Rynearson, of Payette, who is running for Denney’s seat, as a substitute for him in the House through Monday. Sen. Russ Fulcher, R-Meridian, named Dan Johnson, a real estate agent from Kuna, to fill in for him for the week; Fulcher is running for governor. Johnson told senators, “He needed some personal time.” Both subs are legislative district GOP chairmen/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. Complete Eye on Boise Sunday column here.

Question: Is it right to use subs in the Idaho Legislature so you can campaign for statewide office?
