Clarification from guv’s office: Otter held no elected post from ‘77 to ‘87

The governor's office wants to clarify this line that appeared at the end of my story in today's paper: “Otter has served in elected office since 1973, as a state lawmaker, longtime lieutenant governor, three-term congressman and governor.” Notes Jon Hanian, Otter's press secretary, “From 1977 to 1987 he held no elective office.” That's certainly the case, and I didn't mean to imply that he'd served continuously, but just in case that's how some read it, please note this clarification.

The story was about Otter's announcement this week that he plans to seek a third term as governor in 2014; he's now one year into his second four-year term.
