“Phil McGrane has the experience and conservative credentials that will make him an excellent Secretary of State,” said Risch. “McGrane is the best candidate to maintain the integrity of Idaho elections. He’s the one who has already been doing it. I hope my fellow Republicans will join Vicki and me in voting Phil McGrane for Secretary of State.
