The Idaho Statesman put it this way:
The Branden Durst campaign has released a web ad with voiceover work by Ted Williams, also known as the "Man with the Golden Pipes." Williams is the formerly homeless man who gained fame in 2011 after he appeared in a video clip that went viral on Youtube.
Durst said he told Williams about his efforts as a legislator to help homeless and struggling Idahoans.
"I am grateful to Mr. Williams for his willingness to help me and my campaign. My commitment to fighting for the less fortunate has never been stronger. Low income families deserve an advocate and that is exactly what I plan to be." Durst said.
Check out the ad on Durst's campaign website here.
He is running against Mitch Toryanski, a republican."
But there's got to be something more than just those paragraphs.
So I asked Candidate Durst.
"I found his contact info online, sent him an email, told him about my work with the poor both in the legislature and in the church and asked him if he'd be willing to help me
That was back in April
I heard back from his booking agent, who told me that that he'd love to do it."
So the connecting link was the former Representative's work with the poor - something Ted Williams fully understands.
Having Ted Williams in the Boise market is a good thing.
He's working his way through his old hurts, habits and hang-ups and he's helping others as he does it.
That's a great example for all of us, Democrat and Republican.
