The state's senior GOP lawmaker received polite applause and a few encouraging hoots when he was introduced at the Boise convention center.

He told other nominees attending the dinner he hoped the attention brought to him did not not lessen the honor they received.

Craig was chosen for induction last spring well before his arrest.

Craig entered the Boise convention center through its front doors, accompanied by family members including his wife and mother. They walked through a crowd of about a dozen photographers, TV cameras and reporters.

In response to a question Craig said he's "doing very well," adding, "I've got my whole family with me."
