Gov. Butch Otter, a guest co-host on KBOI talk radio this afternoon, was asked by a caller what he thinks of the candidates in the 1st Congressional District GOP primary race. Otter briefly praised both Vaughn Ward and Raul Labrador, and said, “The Republican Party’s got a pretty deep bench when it comes to all the offices.” But he added, “There may not be all the candidates in that race yet that may get in it. … Remember they’ve got until the middle of March in order to get in.”
