Popkey on Otter re-election announcement: ‘Don’t buy it’

Here's Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey's take on Gov. Butch Otter's announcement that he'll seek a third term as governor in 2014: It's "gubernatorial bluster." Popkey wites, "My take: He hasn't made up his mind." He he notes that Otter is "keen to avoid a prolonged lame-duckhood" and has a substantial campaign debt to pay off; and that he's hardly seemed in re-election mode lately, passing on a state trade mission in favor of attending the National Finals Rodeo and spending three weeks since Nov. 13 on out-of-state junkets or on vacation.
