1 Year Ago: Is Crosby In Or Out?

From Feb. 19, 2014, post on HucksOnline:

Yesterday, I hinted that a Post Falls businessman was about to jump into the House District 3B race for the seat now held by retiring state Rep. Frank Henderson, R-Post Falls. Banker Len Crosby was the individual I had in mind. After I hinted at the prospect, a well-connected individual called to assure me that Len was noncommittal at best. However, I keep hearing from other circles that he's in. So, this morning, I called Len who's on vacation in Hawaii. He said he will announce his decision in a few days -- and considers it an honor to be asked to try to fill Henderson's shoes and continue to work on issues that the 91YO representative has set in motion. My guess at this point -- and it's only a guess -- is that Len's in. More here.

DFO: Crosby, of course, later bowed out of the GOPrimary race, citing the need to take care of his 90YO mother. Henderson ultimately endorsed Greg Gfeller, who lost a three-way GOPrimary race to Donald Cheatham, who eventually won the seat.
