First Lady Lori Otter will fill in for Gov. Butch Otter at his campaign fundraiser tonight, a $1,000-a-plate dinner at Chandler's Steakhouse with Rudy Giuliani, for which 100 people have registered. "The governor is in good spirits and following doctor's orders," Otter's campaign manager, Debbie Field, told Eye on Boise in an email. "He remains in the hospital and will be unable to attend the Giuliani event tonight, much to his chagrin. The First Lady will attend on his behalf."
