In a Saturday endorsement editorial, the Idaho Statesman Editorial Board said: "We made our decision to endorse (state Rep. Holli Woodings, D-Boise) without regard to either candidate's "experience," simply because we don't believe it is very applicable. We are more concerned about their impartiality running elections, monitoring campaign finances and lobbyists, and managing Idaho interests on the Land Board. Our concerns about (state Rep. Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale) revolve around past partisan dealings and future plans to tinker with voting. Denney's failure as speaker to take action against former Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, who stole state timber and refused to pay $600,000 in back state and federal taxes, has us questioning his impartiality. More here.
