BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Republican Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho has endorsed Midvale Rep. Lawerence Denney to be Idaho secretary of state.

Labrador made the endorsement Tuesday in Boise.

Labrador cited Denney’s business and political experience as well as his dedication to conservative principles and fair elections.

Idaho State Treasurer Ron Crane also endorsed Denney on Tuesday.

The race for the GOP nomination is already crowded, with Ada County Chief Deputy Clerk Phil McGrane and former state senators Evan Frasure and Mitch Toryanski running. Boise Rep. Holli Woodings is the only Democrat vying for the post.

Idaho’s secretary of state is the top election official, responsible for keeping track of campaigns and lobbyists. The secretary of state also holds a seat on the Idaho Land Board.
