Governor Otter focuses on General Election in November

LEWISTON, ID - The Primary Election in May was a sign that voters continue to back two-term Governor "Butch" Otter, and the governor said if re-elected he has big plans for the Gem State.

Otter came out victorious in what he called 'a good hard fought primary' against Senate Majority Chairman Russ Fulcher. Otter said he now has his sights set on the General Election. If re-elected Otter said attracting jobs and education will be his focuses.

"Implementing the 20 task force recommendations that we got from the governors education task force, you know that a five year $350-million investment plan," said Otter. "That along with the new tools that we have in our toolbox for growing companies in Idaho."

In his bid for a third term, Otter will face democrat A-J Balukoff this November.
