Fulcher Launches Ad Campaign

With just three weeks left before Idaho’s primary election, GOP gubernatorial challenger Russ Fulcher, pictured in AP file photo, has launched his first statewide campaign commercial and posted billboards around the state. Incumbent Gov. Butch Otter hasn’t, but plans to hit the airwaves between now and the primary, said Jayson Ronk, Otter’s campaign manager. Otter has been running a low-key race as he seeks a third term, leaving Fulcher, the Idaho Senate’s GOP majority caucus chairman, to face off with fringe candidates Harley Brown and Walter Bayes at candidate forums. Otter agreed to one debate with Fulcher and the other two candidates, which will air May 14 on Idaho Public Television. The primary election is May 20. China Gum, Fulcher’s campaign manager, said, “If Russ Fulcher’s legacy was the legacy that the governor has, then he probably wouldn’t want to get out in front of the people and answer questions, too”/Betsy Russell, SR.

Question: What is Fulcher's best argument against Otter?
