Idaho Candidate’s Coffers Filling with Funds

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter raised $85,000 in campaign contributions as he prepares for what he says will be a run in 2014 for a third term.

Otter also forgave a $131,000 loan he’d previously made to his own campaign and ended the first six month of the year with just over $129,000 in his coffers, according to a report with the Idaho secretary of state’s office.

Though Otter says he plans to run again, he has yet to make a formal announcement.

Meanwhile, another lawmaker who says he’ll run again, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna, raised far less, adding just $4,750 to his campaign’s reserves.

A two-term lawmaker like Otter, Luna has $20,827 in his campaign account, but also has $24,500 in debt left over from previous races.
