Gov. Otter forms committee designed to give money to Republican campaigns

Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter has formed a political action committee designed to give money to Republican campaigns across the state.

The PAC, called the Otterpac, formed earlier this year as Otter has three years left in his final term as governor.

The Spokesman-Review reports that Otter’s PAC can accept unlimited contributions from corporations. The Republican governor says he’ll likely focus on supporting state lawmakers who have supported or partnered with him in the past.

The PAC’s first fundraising event will be Jan. 9, the Saturday before the 2016 Idaho Legislature begins. Tickets to the gala begin at $500 and run as high as $10,000.

Former Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa says he dissuaded Otter from forming a PAC earlier.
