Lt. Gov. Little to announce 2014 election plans on Wednesday

September 12, 2013 

Lieutenant governor since 2009, Brad Little's duties include presiding over the Idaho Senate and filling in for the governor when the latter is out of state. Little has also been heavily involved in economic development projects in his part-time role.

On Wednesday, Sept. 18, Little — a Republican — will announce his plans for the 2014 election cycle, his campaign announced Thursday. The announcement will take place in Emmett, Little's hometown, at 7:30 a.m. in Emmett City Park. Gov. Butch Otter and first lady Lori Otter will be special guests.

Little plans a two-week statewide tour after the announcement.

Little has been mentioned as a possible eventual successor to Otter. Otter, for his part, says he'll run for re-election next year.

"I am not going to look like I'm setting up a deal to convince the governor not to run, because I think he's staying," Little told the Statesman in February. "But if I'm coming to a fork in the road and the sign says, 'Do nothing,' or 'Do something,' I'm probably taking the fork on the prepared side."

Idaho Statesman is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper.
