Delegation lines up to support Craig

The other three members of Idaho’s all-Republican congressional delegation all have issued statements supporting Sen. Larry Craig in his decision to remain in office rather than resign. Here are their statements:

Sen. Mike Crapo: “Senator Craig has the right to pursue his legal options as does any citizen, and I support his effort. I look forward to serving with him as we continue to work on issues important to Idaho.”

Rep. Mike Simpson: “Sen. Craig’s announcement gives the people of Idaho some certainty for the next 15 months. I remain convinced this delegation will continue to effectively represent Idaho as we turn our focus to more pressing matters.”

Rep. Bill Sali: “Our prayers continue to be with Senator Craig and his family as they make decisions that will affect their future and Idaho's. The people of Idaho will benefit most if Idaho's delegation remains united in working to secure the greatest results possible for our state. I am committed to do everything I can to help make Senator Craig’s remaining months in office as successful as possible.”
