Otter’s campaign is working it

1st District Congressman Butch Otter made it clear where he’s looking when he announced that he was running for governor in 2006 – before he was even sworn in for his current two-year term in Congress. Now, here’s evidence of what Otter’s been up to: He’s had 23 fundraisers for the gubernatorial campaign just in the month of August, all in Idaho. “It’s been overwhelming,” said campaign manager Debbie Field.

Jerry Brady, the Idaho Falls newspaper publisher who challenged Gov. Dirk Kempthorne in 2002, also has been campaigning on the Democratic side. No word yet from Lt. Gov. Jim Risch, who is widely expected to run against Otter in the GOP primary.
