Times-News: Bedke Thinks About Higher Office ... Down the Road

Posted By on Mon, Jun 17, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Idaho Republican House Speaker Scott Bedke says he doesn't have his eye on any other elected office, but doesn't "want to rule anything out."

The Twin Falls Times-News' Melissa Davlin reports that Bedke didn't specify what other office he would pursue—and that he would want to have his son out of college before making a bid—but added, "You can't plan these things."

Bedke told the Times-News that he was satisfied with his first-term performance as House Speaker, but acknowledged that the protracted debate over the creation of a state-run health insurance exchange split his Republican party. Bedke said he refused to put a struggle over House leadership in the forefront of his thoughts.
