Idaho Gov. Butch Otter spent more than 250 hours on the campaign trail in the first seven months of 2014, a Statesman analysis of his calendar shows.
The governor traveled the state in the run-up to the May 20 primary, attending political and campaign events and fundraisers, including more than 50 "Otter for Idaho" branded events and meetings.
"Governor Otter is governor 24/7, 365 days a year," said Otter's campaign spokeswoman Kaycee Emery in an email Monday. "Throughout his time in office and as a candidate, he has traveled across the state and listened to Idahoans about what they want for their families and future."
The Statesman analysis included political events, appointments, meetings and related travel time as scheduled on Otter's calendar. The Statesman obtained the calendar through a public record request.
