Fulcher Pooh-Pooh’s Otter’s Co-Chairs

Gov. Butch Otter's list of 30 campaign co-chairs — which includes the Legislature’s four top leaders, Secretary of State Ben Ysursa and former Lt. Gov. Jack Riggs — is a collection of “the same people who have been on the ‘inside’ advancing their own agenda for years,” says Otter’s GOP primary challenger, Senate Majority Leader Russ Fulcher. “Idaho needs a new direction, a new vision – one that uplifts the people of our great state from the oppressive actions of government,” Fulcher said in a news release. Fulcher, of Meridian, said he knew his challenge “would be a threat to the status quo. I believe that threat is necessary, and I think change is necessary. Those in power don’t like change”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Do you think Otter's co-chairs would be more impressive to Fulcher if they were sitting in his corner?
