Caldwell Republican Changes Mind

Greg Chaney, (pictured in Idaho Press Tribune photo) who just just months ago said he would not seek or accept the GOP nomination for the District 10B seat in the Idaho House, has reconsidered. In a written statement issued Saturday evening, Chaney said since he beat two write-in challengers in last month's primary election, he has spoken to party leaders, community members and spent "countless hours" discussing the situation with his family. After spending the past three and a half weeks in prayer about the best path forward, Chaney said he decided to "honor the will of the people" and accept the Republican nomination. Chaney suspended his campaign in April after a backlash over his failure to completely disclose past legal problems. Chaney, 32, has filed bankruptcy twice since 2004. He also pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors, disturbing the peace and malicious injury to property, stemming from a 2009 argument with his girlfriend, whom he later married and divorced/Idaho Statesman.

Question: Are you surprised that Chaney changed his mind?
