"I have announced that I am deferring my efforts to become Idaho's next Lieutenant Governor for a future election cycle. I do not make this decision lightly. By many measures, my campaign has been successful, and I have received growing support each day. However, this is the correct decision for many reasons. I cannot say “thank you” enough to those who have put their faith in me, and I promise that we are not done working for a bright future for Idaho. I am so grateful for and humbled by the support of so many."
