The key difference between the governor’s fantasy world and the real world the rest of us inhabit: Magic.
The governor will need powerful magic if he is to convince us that his recent embrace of education is a genuine priority.
Harley Brown has run for everything from Congress to Boise mayor to highway district commissioner. Now, he says he wants experience in the ‘little league’ of running state government.
In another sign that he will seek a third term in 2014, Gov. Butch Otter has named an industry lobbyist to manage his (as yet unannounced) re-election campaign.
Who was Gov. Butch Otter’s biggest campaign benefactor this year? And how much — or how little — has state superintendent Tom Luna collected this year? The latest campaign finance reports yield some interesting answers.
State superintendent Tom Luna says he’s running for a third term. Chief deputy-in-waiting Roger Quarles says he isn’t planning to run. State Sen. Branden Durst, D-Boise, isn’t buying it; he argues that the game is afoot.
Citing an unnamed source, a Huffington Post writer strongly suggests Rep. Raul Labrador will leave Congress to oppose Gov. Butch Otter in the 2014 GOP primary. Labrador still isn’t talking.
The 16-year veteran of the Boise School Board says he is flattered by the suggestion. But he says he won’t decide about whether to run for governor until later in the year.
