Idaho House Candidate Chaney: 'I'm Staying In Race'

Posted By on Wed, Apr 16, 2014 at 11:35 AM

A Canyon County Republican is digging in his heels, saying he is staying in the May 20 GOP race to take the Idaho House seat being vacated by Caldwell Rep. Darrell Bolz.

This morning's Idaho Press Tribune reports that Greg Chaney told an April 15 meeting of the Canyon County Republican Central Committee that he won't quit, despite recent revelations of his legal troubles.

Caldwell attorney Brian Bishop said he would run in the May 20 GOP primary as a write-in candidate after the public learned that the 32-year-old Chaney had been convicted of disturbing the peace and malicious injury to property after a 2009 incident where police initially charged him with false imprisonment.

"I just want to reassure that it was never my intention to misstate or misrepresent anything that's happened in the past," Chaney told the GOP gathering Tuesday. "I also feel very strongly that I have a unique position to carry the conservative voice forward for Canyon County."
