Heinz Kerry stumps for governor candidate in Sun Valley

KETCHUM — Jerry Brady, the eastern Idaho newspaper publisher who’s running for governor in 2006, got a little fundraising help from a prominent Sun Valley woman.
Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of the former presidential candidate John Kerry, was stumping for Brady at an event in Ketchum. She has a house there.
Among Brady’s possible Republican opponents, only U.S. Rep. Butch Otter says so far he’s running for the top Idaho post.
Brady garnered only 42 percent of the vote in 2002 when he lost a previous bid for the governor’s job to Dirk Kempthorne.
Heinz Kerry says she thinks Brady’s campaign is far ahead of where he was three years ago when he lost.
Brady’s family owns the Idaho Falls Post Register in Idaho Falls.
