You can see a snapshot of how the two major candidates for governor are campaigning Saturday.
Democratic Boise businessman A.J. Balukoff is hosting a tailgate party at Albertsons Stadium during the Boise State vs. Colorado State football game.
"I'm looking forward to meeting with people in the community and supporting our local university,'' he said in a press release. "Having access to higher education is important to our children, our local communities and our economy. And we must support it. I'm also eager to just unwind and have some fun with other fans.''
Meanwhile Gov. Butch Otter and First Lady Lori Otter will be at Air Force Appreciation Day from 9:30 to noon in Mountain Home. He'll be in his official capacity, of course, his version of a home-field advantage.
After my initial post the Balukoff campaign called to tell me he's going to Air Force Appreciation Day too before tailgating!
