Trib: Otter throws in the towel

In today's editorial, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune comments:

Last week, Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter described transportation funding as "one of the central focuses and primary frustrations of my three terms as governor." Then he threw in the towel. With 20 months and still one more legislative session ahead of him, Otter has dismissed the possibility of doing anything more to shore up financial support for highways and bridges. That's why he allowed the Legislature's flawed $320 million highway package to become law without his signature. More here.

Question: Do you think Gov. Butch Otter has thrown in the towel on his gubernatorial career?
