Allred faults Otter for 'irrational pessimism'

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Keith Allred slammed GOP Gov. Butch Otter today for what he called his "irrational pessimism and recklessness," saying that in two weeks of travel around the state, he's heard concerns from people across the political spectrum over Otter's proposed budget cuts to schools, Idaho Public Television and state parks. You can read Allred's full release here; I'm awaiting a response from the Otter campaign, but as of 7:30 p.m. Boise time, still haven't heard back.
