Gov. Butch Otter's health hasn't changed, according to his press secretary, Jon Hanian.  He said the governor could remain in a Boise hospital Tuesday night.  "We're just kind of waiting to see how he's doing," Hanian said.  The governor was admitted to a hospital Monday with flu-like symptoms and dehydration, and has missed some scheduled events.  "We've cleared his schedule (today), and some of the things I had for him tomorrow I've cleared," Hanian said.

Otter has a campaign event with former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani planned for Tuesday evening.  An official with Otter's campaign said the event, which includes a $1,000-a-plate dinner, will still happen, though the governor may not be able to attend.

UPDATE: The governor's office released the following statement from Lori Otter Tuesday evening: “The governor and I want to express our thanks to all the folks who have sent us their kind thoughts and well wishes. As many hands as we shake, it was just a matter of time before he picked up a bug. He ran a high fever for a few days and became severely dehydrated, so he has been on fluids and antibiotics. He is now feeling better and we look forward to him heading home tomorrow.”
