Lieutenant Gov. Brad Little will officially kick off a campaign on Friday in Boise, though his announcement for the event is vague on what he will announce.

Little has scheduled a 9 a.m. press conference at Capitol Park, in front of the Statehouse cyclone fencing in Boise, followed by events in Idaho Falls and Coeur d'Alene. Actually, he's holding a $25 a pop announcement breakfast at the Crystal Ballroom prior to the press announcement.

He has a full campaign committee, chaired by former Lite Govs Gov. Butch Otter, Sen. Jim Risch, and the other former Lite Govs Jack Riggs and Mark Ricks and deputies divided up by regions of the state. He has been raising money for a year. He is "officially running for the Office of Lt. Gov." according to a campaign official.

And yet, even his campaign Web site is totally vague on what office he's running for. Even his Facebook friends appear clueless.

Why all the secrecy for a popular, sitting lieutenant governor? Is it just a social media ploy? Does Little have something up his sleeve? Or is citydesk just a sucker for a good conspiracy theory?
