Eye On Boise

Candidate for Idaho governor to spend Election Night in D.C.

When Idaho candidates gather at their respective election-night bashes tomorrow night to watch the primary election results come in, accept their parties’ nominations or concede to those who’ve defeated them, one of the biggest names from the top of Idaho’s GOP ticket will be missing. That’s because Congressman Butch Otter, who’s running for governor, flew back to Washington, D.C. this morning and isn’t coming back tomorrow. His press secretary, Mark Warbis, said Otter already voted in the primary by absentee ballot. “He’s got a job he was elected to do – he’s going to go back and do it,” Warbis said. “He will not be here on Election Night. … They have votes scheduled this evening.” Tomorrow afternoon, Otter is scheduled to participate in a subcommittee hearing on the “Antifreeze Bittering Act of 2006.”
