Thieneman said he is sure Heiner wouldn't trade an endorsement for a promise of employment in his administration because he tried to get one and was denied. Yes. Thieneman offered his endorsement in exchange for an appointment in a Heiner administration four months ago.

Thieneman says his "respect" for Hal grew after his offer was denied.
