After Idaho Sen. Russ Fulcher told Eye on Boise this week that he’s not “on the same page” as Gov. Butch Otter on education, Idaho EdNews reporter Kevin Richert analyzed Fulcher’s legislative record on the issue – and found that it mirrored Otter’s position nearly exactly. “Fulcher’s voting record shows that he was in line with Otter on every major education issue of 2013,” Richert reported; you can read his full report here. Fulcher is considering challenging Otter in the GOP primary in May.
