Andrus Recovering From Lung Cancer

Malignant tumor removed, the former governor says there are no plans for chemotherapy or radiation. Former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus is recuperating at home in Boise after surgery but says he plans to make his annual elk hunt in October. “I’ll be strong enough by then,” Andrus told the Statesman on Monday. “I’m at home recovering, feeling fine. I’m going to be around for a long time.” Andrus said surgeons and a pathologist found no sign of any other cancer after a surgery that lasted over five hours on July 3. “They say it doesn’t look like it’s going to require any further treatment,” he said. Andrus will be 83 on Aug. 25/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: How would you compare Cecil Andrus as governor to Butch Otter?
