Little schedules election announcement

Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little has scheduled his “official announcement tour” to announce his candidacy for re-election as lieutenant governor, but when I looked at the tour announcement, I only saw “Brad Little for Idaho.” It named his campaign co-chairs, who are the state’s last four lieutenant governors: Gov. Butch Otter, U.S. Sen. Jim Risch, Hon. Jack Riggs, and Hon. Mark Ricks. And it noted announcements planned for Oct. 30 in Boise, Idaho Falls, and Coeur d’Alene. But it never said just what office Little would be announcing for. So I called campaign spokesman Jason Lehosit with the question: What’s Little running for? “That would be lieutenant governor,” he replied. Gov. Butch Otter, who’s strongly hinted that he, too, is seeking re-election, has yet to schedule his own formal announcement.
