Ad: Allred Raps Otter On Ed, Taxes

In his latest post, Kevin Richert/Idaho Statesman writes: "In his latest TV ad, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Keith Allred conflates two of his main campaign talking points. He criticizes Republican Gov. Butch Otter for presiding over a $128 million budget cut to public schools, while pushing a tax increase." He writes more here. And then asks whether the message is on point.

Question: Is the criticism leveled by Democrat Keith Allred about Gov. Butch Otter in this ad legitimate?
