Here’s Democratic candidate for governor Keith Allred’s response to incumbent Gov. Butch Otter’s campaign rally with Mitt Romney in Boise today and Frank VanderSloot’s comments there:
“It’s unfortunate that Frank Vandersloot wants to use religious and partisan labels to distract people from the actual positions held by the candidates. I stand for keeping taxes low on Idaho families and providing a great education for Idaho schoolkids. These are priorities that Republicans and Democrats, Mormons and non-Mormons alike support. By contrast, Butch Otter tried to raise taxes on Idaho families during the worst recession in our lifetimes, and pushed through an historic cut to Idaho’s schools. It’s precisely because my priorities are resonating so well with Idahoans that Butch Otter has asked Mitt Romney to ride to his rescue.”
