Weatherby: ‘No governor wants to be considered a lame duck prematurely’

Here's a link to my full story at spokesman.com on Gov. Butch Otter's announcement that he'll see a third term in 2014. It includes this comment from longtime Idaho political observer Jim Weatherby: "Who knows whether it's for real or not? I suspect part of this is in reaction to the speculation that he would not even finish his current term, and no governor wants to be considered a lame duck prematurely. Whether he actually runs three years from now may still be subject to question, but at least he's asserting that he's going to be around for a while, that he's not done."
