Here’s a link to a WMA download of today’s telephone press conference with former Rehberg chief of staff Erik Iverson. Iverson, a longtime family friend of the Rehberg’s, was at the hospital in Kalispell where Rehberg was undergoing surgery to repair a broken ankle.
Iverson confirmed that the two staffers who were on the boat with Rehberg were Dustin Frost, Rehberg’s state director, and Kristen Smith, Rehberg’s health care policy advisor. Iverson did not give any information about the Smith or Frost’s condition. He also did not comment on the condition of Sen. Greg Barkus or Kathy Barkus.
