Asked why Gov. Butch Otter signed SB 1066, the bill to create a new $2 million presidential primary the second Tuesday of March, Otter’s spokesman, Jon Hanian, said today, “There were some concerns previously about absentee and military folks not being able to be represented” in party presidential nominating caucuses. “That’s primarily the reason,” Hanian said. “The concerns about absentees and military was, I think, a central concern. … He believes that you can’t put a price on that”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Speaking through his PR guy, Gov. Otter sez he can't put a price on the early GOPrez primary next year. Huckleberries can. $2 million wasted dollars. A million here & a million there & pretty soon you're talking about a lot of money. Thoughts?
