otterFruitland – Governor Butch Otter has endorsed the candidacy of Abby Lee for the District 9 Idaho State Senate seat.

Governor Otter said, “Please join me in supporting Abby Lee for the Idaho State Senate. Abby is intelligent, hard-working and focused on bringing solutions to the legislature.”

Abby Lee is challenging Monty Pearce, who has been in the legislature since 1999, for the senate seat.

The statement continued, “Abby understands and is willing to fight for the conservative values that are so important to District 9. I hope you can join me in supporting Abby Lee in the May 20th Republican Primary.”

Abby Lee is also endorsed for the Idaho State Senate seat by Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, and former District 9 State Senator Mary Hartung and former District 9 Representative and State Controller Donna Jones.

Abby Lee said she is running for the Idaho State Senate seat because she believes it is time for a change, time for new ideas, and time for someone new to represent the interests of the citizens living in Payette, Washington, Canyon and Adams counties. “I will be responsive, reliable and defend conservative republican values in the state senate. I will show up to vote for the interests of families in District 9.”

Abby Lee said she will work to protect District 9’s farmers and ranchers, protect Idaho’s water, restore education, press for lowering taxes, defend the right to gun ownership and hunting, and work to create jobs using our natural resources.

Abby Lee is married to fourth-generation Idahoan Brian Lee, an attorney and former Payette County Prosecuting Attorney. Together they have two daughters, Payton and Chance. Abby is a graduate of Brigham Young University and currently works for Treasure Valley Community College.
