State senator to run for governor of Idaho

MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) - A conservative lawmaker from Meridian has announced he's running for governor of Idaho.

Senate GOP Caucus Chairman Russ Fulcher made the announcement Saturday and says one of his main priorities is to reverse implementing the Affordable Care Act in Idaho and replace it with what he calls a patient-powered alternative.

Fulcher in a statement says he's deeply concerned about the current direction of the state and disagrees with how Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter has handled the state's response to President Barack Obama's health care law.

The announcement sets up the 51-year-old Fulcher to challenge the 71-year-old Otter in the May 2014 Republican primary.

Otter has yet to formally announce his campaign plans, but he's been raising money and telling supporters he intends to seek a third term.


A "patient-powered alternative"?

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill 
If you want to be like the folks on the hill."
