Butch Writes

At the GOPrimary gubernatorial debate this spring, Harley Brown, Walt Bayes and Gov. Otter listen to a question from the panelists. There was a "regular guy" involved, too -- but I can't recall his name. (AP File Photo)

I received a nice, personal note from Gov. Butch Otter in the mail. He addressed it to "Dear David." I thought it was from a member of my family because my siblings are the only ones who call me "David." I noticed, however, that it was from Butch. And he was the bearer of grave news: "Who do you think knows what's best for Idaho -- the people of Idaho, or the bureaucrats of Washington, D.C.?" the letter began. Before I could venture a guess at the answer, Butch continued: "That seems like an obvious question, and maybe it is, at least to you and me. But my Democrat opponent, actually wants to bring the far-left policies of Barack Obama, his failed administration, and the disastrous Washington bureaucracy here to Idaho. This is wrong." You can read the full letter from the governor here. (AP File Photo: Butch Otter & Co. at GOPrimary gubernatorial debate this spring)

Question: Do you think the gubernatorial debate between Butch & A.J. will be as interesting as the GOPrimary guv debate?
