Former congresswoman stumps Sunday

From staff reports

POST FALLS— Former Idaho Republican Congresswoman Helen Chenoweth-Hage is coming to Post Falls Sunday to stump for two District 5 legislative candidates.

Chenoweth-Hage, who now lives in Nevada, is having a support rally for Rep. Charles Eberle, R-Post Falls, and Ron Vieselmeyer at the Highlands Day Spa.

Eberle, a former Post Falls School Board member who won election to the Idaho House in 2002, is vying for re-election in the May 25 Republican primary against former Kootenai County Commissioner and Post Falls Mayor Frank Henderson. Whoever wins the primary will face Democrat Lyndon Harriman in the November general election.

Vieselmeyer, who served in the Idaho House in 1988-1990, is running against Kootenai County Republican Chairman Bob Nonini in the primary. Whoever wins the primary will face Democrat David Larsen and Constitution Party candidate Rose Johnson in the November general election. The winner will replace 22-year veteran Rep. Hilde Kellogg, R-Post Falls, who is retiring.

Sponsored guests will meet with Chenoweth-Hage at 5:30 p.m. and get an update on her travels since she left the U.S. Congress in 2000. Chenoweth-Hage retired to keep a self-imposed three-term limit on her service. Rep. Butch Otter, R-Idaho, won her seat. She will give a speech to the general public at 6 p.m., discussing private property rights and her views on the District 5 legislative races.

Space for the event is limited and general admission is $10 per person. To make reservations, call (208) 667-8910.
