Shoppers at the Albertson’s store at 16th and State streets reported an unusual sight this morning – Gov. Butch Otter and a crew apparently filming a campaign commercial, doing multiple takes. Otter campaign spokeswoman Kaycee Emery confirmed that’s what was happening. “We’re currently in production,” she said. “I can’t really discuss the details, but we have been to a variety of locations and we’ll continue to utilize a variety of locations across the valley.” The date that Otter’s new campaign spot will begin airing hasn’t yet been finalized, she said.
Meanwhile, the GOP governor’s Democratic challenger, A.J. Balukoff, has had his own TV campaign commercial up and running for more than a month now; it starts airing in the Spokane television market tomorrow.
