Carlson: 5 Dems To Challenge Otter

In his weekly column for the St. Maries Gazette Record and Randy Stapilus's Ridenbaugh Press, Chris Carlson comments that Idaho Democrats may have a long-shot chance to win back the governor's seat, if Butch Otter runs for a third term. Quoth: "Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter says he will seek a third term. Good! With the way he is “mailing it in” that may provide Democrats with the first real opportunity to occupy the executive chair since then Attorney General Larry Echohawk lost to Phil Batt in 1994." Here's the 5 Democrats Chris views as best candidates to run against Otter:

  • 1. Rep. Brian Cronin
  • 2. Sen. Michelle Stennett
  • 3. Boise Mayor Dave Bieter
  • 4. Doug Siddoway
  • 5. Keith Allred
