Otter forms PAC to fundraise

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has formed a new political action committee, Otterpac, that can accept unlimited contributions from corporations, and plans to donate to GOP campaigns from the state level down to party precinct committee posts. It’s a move that could make Otter, long a formidable campaign fund-raiser, stay relevant in Idaho electoral politics even as a lame-duck governor with no race of his own on the horizon. He has three years left in his third and final term as governor. “I’m not going to go out and take revenge,” Otter told The Spokesman-Review. “This is more a positive attitude, and a positive effort.” He said he’s “in the sunset, so to speak, of my final term,” and “you want to continue to support those people that have supported you”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
