Fulcher Expected to Launch Gubernatorial Campaign Saturday 

The first event is set for Nov. 23 at 10 a.m. in Fulcher's hometown of Meridian. That will be followed by an event at 11:35 (Pacific Time) in Coeur d'Alene and 3:30 p.m. (back to Mountain Time) in Idaho Falls.

Meridian Republican Sen. Russ Fulcher has made up his mind on running for Idaho Governor. Ånd unless he wants to spend a lot of money barnstorming across the state in one day just to tell people "no thanks," Fulcher is expected to launch his effort to unseat Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter this Saturday, Nov. 23.

Following what he called his "listening tour," Fulcher has apparently listened enough to go public with his intentions.

The first event is set for Nov. 23 at 10 a.m. in Fulcher's hometown of Meridian. That will be followed by an event at 11:35 (Pacific Time) in Coeur d'Alene and 3:30 p.m. (back to Mountain Time) in Idaho Falls.

The 50-year-old Fulcher, who pays the bills through his commercial real estate business, has had a high-profile tenure at the Idaho Statehouse since first being elected to the Senate in 2005.

In particular, Fulcher is targeting Otter's support of a state-run health insurance exchange as the foundation of mounting a gubernatorial challenge.

Otter defeated three challengers in a 2006 Republican primary and five challengers in a 2010 GOP face-off.
