What's Little planning?
If GOP Lt. Gov. Brad Little is simply seeking to retain his part-time $35,100 job, hell be taunted for overkill. Little begins a statewide jaunt Wednesday with a 7:30 a.m. pancake breakfast and announcement at City Park in Emmett, his hometown.
Gov. Otter a special guest
Little, 59, has said he expects Butch Otter to run again and Otter, 71, has spent two years insisting he wants a third term.
Why the fanfare?
Little, considered a lock for re-election, is the first No. 2 to publish a weekly public schedule and has been doggedly raising his profile. Hes said he is prepared to run for the top spot if Otter retires.
What about Raul?
For more than a year, GOP Congressman Labrador eyed the race. But in August he announced hell seek re-election to the House. If conspiracy theorists are correct, Littles 19-city tour will be a pitch to be governor and proof that Otter and Little planned the old switcheroo from the start, blocking out Labrador to clear a path for Little.
