Idaho GOP chair backs Craig

J. Kirk Sullivan, chairman of the Idaho Republican Party, said today, “I’m going to support Sen. Craig.” After hearing Craig’s statement at a downtown news conference, Sullivan said, “I listened, and I heard a man open his heart up today. I think he knows that he made a snap judgment in Minneapolis. I think he knows it, and I think he is in a position to correct it.” Asked how Craig could correct a case in which he’s already pleaded guilty and been sentenced, Sullivan said, “Nobody’s proven anything.” He said he believes Craig can still be an effective senator for Idaho, because others in Congress have survived scandals and continued their careers.
