Dan Popkey of the Idaho Statesman gives 3 reasons why Gov. Butch Otter announced Wednesday that he's seeking re-election in 2014 — and why you should take that announcement with a grain of salt: 1. Otter's keen to avoid an prolonged lame-duckhood. Ever since he took office, his fellow Republicans in the Legislature have had the upper hand. 2. Otter's broke. His last campaign report, for the six months ending June 30, showed $206,000 in debt and $10,444 in cash. And 3. Otter's feeling blue about recent editorials that say he's “mailing it in” and leaving the heavy lifting to Lt. Gov. Brad Little, who insiders have long perceived as Otter's hand-picked successor.

Question: Didn't Otter once support term limits?
