Idaho Gov Wins Over "Biker, Curmudgeon, Normal Guy


By Paul Johnson

Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - Idaho's biker candidate for governor may have stolen the show during the primary campaign -- but he didn't win the race.
Two-term governor butch otter came out on top in the republican primary.
He narrowly beat out tea party challenger state senator Russ Fulcher for the victory.
During a debate last week, another candidate -- Harley brown, the one in biker gear -- labeled Otter a "cowboy" and Fulcher the "normal guy."
"When you have your choice folks: a cowboy, a curmudgeon, a biker, or a normal guy. Take your pick. Thank you very much, we're leaving it up to you."
In November’s election....otter will now face off against democrat AJ Balukoff, a businessman and Boise school board chairman.
