Gov. Otter said that unifying the Republican Party will bring success in the November election

MOSCOW, ID - Idaho Governor Butch Otter also spoke about unity in Moscow Friday.

It's an election year for the governor, and he'll need support from all republican voters, including the ones who voted against him in the tight Primary last May.

Governor Otter said Primary Elections have caused tension among Idaho's republicans many times in the state's history. But he said the past is proof they'll be able to move past those differences in opinions once again.

"For the last eight years, we have balanced our budget, we haven't raised taxes, in fact we've cut taxes," said Governor Otter. "We're in the process of building a better education system and a better economy for everybody, and I believe that alone will unify the party and we'll go forward in November and be successful."

Otter is nearing the end of his second term as governor. He won the Primary Election with 51.4% of the votes.
