Otter: ‘We’re at Door No. 2 now’

Gov. Butch Otter, at a ribbon-cutting in Twin Falls today, confirmed that he’s being vetted as a possible nominee for Secretary of Agriculture in the Trump Administration, and told Times-News reporter Nathan Brown that the Trump transition team asked him to list the top three positions he was interested in, in order, and he listed Interior secretary, agriculture secretary and head of the International Trade Administration. “We’re at door No. 2 right now,” Otter said.
