David Leroy to file candidacy papers

Former Idaho Attorney General David Leroy is looking to get back into politics.

The 69-year-old Boise attorney told KTVB that he and his wife plan to take the short walk from his law office in the Hoff Building to the Idaho Capitol Thursday morning. There, he will present Secretary of State Lawerence Denney with candidacy papers.

The speculation is that Leroy, a Republican, could seek Raul Labrador's first congressional seat, or he may announce another run for governor. 

Labrador filed paperwork Tuesday with the secretary of state to run as a Republican for governor in 2018.

Leroy last ran for Congress in 1994, when he lost the Republican primary to Helen Chenoweth. He previously served four years as Idaho attorney general from 1979-1983 and as lieutenant governor from 1983 to 1987. He ran for governor in 1986, losing to Democrat Cecil Andrus.

After presenting his candidacy papers, Leroy plans to speak with the media.
