Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has no plans to step down if he wins the May Republican primary or the November general election.  Otter’s campaign manager, Debbie Field, said a rumor spread by challengers in the governor’s race is not true.  Sharon Ullman, an Ada County commissioner, mentioned the possibility of Otter resigning during a televised debate Tuesday.

“I’ve heard it everywhere,” Field told IdahoReporter.com.  “He’s not working this hard to give this job up to anyone.”  She also said he’s healthy to serve the next four years.  The governor was hospitalized in April due to fatigue and dehydration.  “He’s got an incredible vision for the next four years.  He’s hoping he gets to go back, create more jobs, and get the economy back.”

Otter has raised more than $200,000 for his re-election campaign this year and had the most cash in his campaign account as of May 9.  He faces Ullman, Rex Rammell of Idaho Falls, Walt Bayes of Wilder, Ron “Pete” Peterson of Boise, and Tamara Wells of Post Falls in the Republican primary May 25.  Democrats Keith Allred of Eagle, who raised the most money of any statewide candidate between Jan. 1 and May 9, and Lee Chaney of Preston meet in that party’s primary.
