Preston back in race against Otter

Democrat Naomi Preston, who earlier had dropped out of her election challenge to GOP Rep. Butch Otter, says she’s back in the race.

Democrats had planned to choose a new challenger for the two-term congressman at their state convention over the weekend, but a few days before that, Preston, an Eagle, Idaho businesswoman, jumped back in. A campaign spokesman said she originally dropped out because of concerns about her mother’s health, but changed plans when her mother recovered.

“She’s definitely back in,” said campaign spokesman Delmar Stone. “If her mother passes away during this race, she’s going to run the race for her mother.”
