Jorgenson: ‘I’d be delighted’

State Sen. Mike Jorgenson, R-Hayden Lake, said it was news to him when the governor added him to his short list today to replace U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, but said, “I think it’d be great if somebody from northern Idaho were named to do that. I’m certainly proud, I’m honored, I’m flattered, and if that’s what the governor asked me to do, I’d be delighted.”

Jorgenson said he had an inquiry from the governor’s office in the last few days, asking if he’d be willing to consider the post, and he said yes. “I’d consider anything the governor wants me to do,” Jorgenson said by phone from Arkansas, where he’s traveling today on business. “I never thought of anything like this. If asked to serve, I’ll do it.”
