Otter Appoints Little To Be Lt. Gov.

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter made big political news just now with his announcement of his pick for the state’s new lieutenant governor: Sen. Brad Little, R-Emmett. Little is  a rancher and Senate majority caucus chairman. “Nobody understands the issues, the personalities or the possibilities better than him, and nobody will work harder for the people of Idaho,” Otter said. Little pronounced himself “more than just delighted.” With many family members and supporters on hand watching, Little said, “I’m excited to join Gov. Otter’s team. We’ve got a lot of work to do … to get Idaho booming and boiling”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Are you as uninspired by Gov. Butch Otter's selection of Sen. Brad Little for the lieutenant governor's post as I am?
