Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter visited the Nevada border town of Elko Friday to help welcome his friend and political comrade Mitt Romney who has brought his race for the White House back to a familiar region. In addition to being the former governor of Massachusetts, Romney considers Utah a second home with deep ties to his Mormon roots and his assignment as chief of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

According to a report in the Elko Daily Free Press, "Romney has an advantage in Nevada because he is a Mormon and has strong support from the state's Mormons which was apparent at the Elko rally."

Otter told the Elko audience that Romney "understands the issues in Nevada and Idaho."
