"May 22, 2007 -- Boston, MA - Governor Mitt Romney today announced the first 25 members of the Romney for President Idaho Leadership Team, a group of leading Idaho business and community leaders who will support Governor Romney as he campaigns in the state and across the nation. U.S. Senator Larry Craig and Lt. Governor James E. Risch will serve as Chairs of the effort.
"I am excited to join with these leaders from across the state of Idaho to talk about the need to bring real change to Washington," said Governor Romney. "Idaho will be an important state in our campaign to end the status quo and prepare our nation to face a new generation of challenges."
With today's announcement, Senator Larry Craig said, "Our government is in need of a proven leader like Governor Romney, who will put in place benchmarks and streamline our government using proven conservative principles. His message is resonating with voters and I'm looking forward to helping him on his way to winning the Republican nomination."
Joining Senator Craig, Lt. Gov. James Risch added, "Governor Romney has proven he is a leader who can get the job done whether in business, at the 2002 Olympics, or as the chief executive of his state. We don't have to take him at his word, we can look at his record and know he won't raise taxes, that he will bring spending under control, and that he'll reduce the size of the bureaucracy in our nation's capital. He is the candidate that will make sure our nation remains a world leader."

Are you speculating that Romney knew about Craig’s predelictions? Romney is a candidate out looking for support wherever he can find it; you can’t hang Craig’s behavior over his head. What, should candidates ask every supporter if they like to have sex with men in bathrooms before getting their support? Give me a break!
