Shortly after Gov. Butch Otter's press conference announcing his appointment of Brad Little as lieutenant governor, the governor swore Little in, in a brief ceremony in the governor's office. He's now on the job, pending confirmation by the Senate. Otter said Little got a particularly good recommendation from perhaps an unexpected quarter, his competition. Otter said he asked every hopeful for the lieutenant governor's post, "If not you, who?" Among all who were willing to answer that question, he said, "All said Brad." Said Otter, "That might be the easiest legislative issue I have this year."
