On the front pages


Big news story in Idaho today was the Friday night gubernatorial debate, which was a four-way debate including two minor party candidates but somehow focusing on Republican incumbent C.L. “Butch” Otter and Democrat A.J. Balukoff. News stories led with Balukoff’s shots at Otter, mainly over economic and state spending issues, and Otter’s replies.
