Endorsement: Kristin Collum

Endorsement from the Post Register for Lt. Governor of Idaho

Kristin Collum is one of the most competent and intelligent statewide candidates the Gem State has seen.

Anyone familiar with the military will recognize what her meteoric rise there says about her grit. Unable to afford college after high school, she enlisted in the Army and started as a private. A decade later, she was an officer with a master’s degree serving on Gen. Colin Powell’s staff. Along the way, she served as an infantry platoon leader.

Collum pulled herself up by her bootstraps, and she pulled herself a very, very long way up. We hope she keeps rising, and she has our unanimous endorsement in the lieutenant governor’s race.
