Otter adds to list of possible Craig successors

Gov. Butch Otter on Friday released a few new potential replacements for Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, who has said he may resign at the end of this month.

The new names include: Charles Cline of Lenore, Brian Hefner of Nampa, Kent Marmon of Caldwell, Charles Pottenger of Lewiston, and Steven Thompson of Heyburn.
