With 509 of 936 precincts reporting, Gov. Butch Otter, who's already been declared the winner of the GOP gubernatorial primary, had 55 percent. Here's how his five challengers did: Rex Rammell, 25.2 percent; Sharon Ullman, 8 percent; Ron "Pete" Peterson, 5.7 percent; and both Walt Bayes and Tamara Wells, 3.1 percent. Ullman, an Ada County commissioner, shown here, said, "It's been an incredible experience. We've met wonderful people around the state, had fabulous support from the people I've spoken with. I learned a great deal."
