Idaho Dem's 2010 standard-bearer Allred demurs on 2014 plans

Idaho Democratic Chairman Larry Grant told Boise State Radio last week that the party's 2010 gubernatorial nominee, Keith Allred, is considering running in 2014.

GOP Gov. Butch Otter, who defeated Allred by a 26-percentage-point margin, twice said last week that he will run in 2014. Otter, whose campaign owes him $206,000, is holding a $500-a-plate fundraiser Jan. 7.

Otter's unusually early announcement prompted Grant to tell reporter Scott Ki that Democrats are getting ready. “There’s been talks with Keith Allred," Grant said. "He’s already expressed an interest in maybe running again. I’ve talked to at least two other folks that are considering it, but they’re not at a point where they want their name out there yet.”

Allred, however, is following a more conventional timetable than Otter, deferring talk of a rematch.

"It’s too early for me to think seriously about the 2014 election," Allred told me in an email.

Allred's campaign owes him $125,000.

Allred, however, still has his campaign website up, unlike Otter, who has disabled his Otter for Idaho website and is raising money on Facebook.

Allred, formerly a professor at Columbia and Harvard, operates Allred Solutions, a training, consulting, and mediation practice. He also teaches in Boise State University's executive MBA program.

Maybe it's true how they hate winning.

Somebody PLEASE explain how the process goes.

Doesnt matter if

Allfred runs again....

Campaign owes Otter?

Wait a second here . . . over the last couple of days you've hypothesized that Otter is feigning that he's running again because he has a "campaign debt" of $200,000. Now today you indicate that his campaign owes HIM $200,000. So which is it? Those are two very different things. Candidates loan their campaigns money all the time. They also frequently overspend their budget. But there's a big difference between owing vendors $200,000 and facing the possibility of writing that check out of your own pocket, and not getting back the $200,000 of your own money you spent getting elected.

it's still considered 'campaign debt'

if you look at the reports. It's still spending beyond your means. Ironic for an Idaho Republican.

jobs

The Statesman's (Popkey, KR, and the Rock) mantra is Otter is out of touch because his efforts are on agriculture and resource industries.

So Chobani is building a state of the art 940,000 sq ft production plant in Twin Falls for 400 direct jobs.

Production- check.
Management?
Accounting?
Computer IT?
Construction?
Maintenance?

Even if you insist on pinning 110% of the accolades on the TF officials, it's all good. THIS is the stuff Idaho needs and it's FRESH MILK from live, breathing, stinky, eating COWS that gets a paycheck for Idahoans. Everybody loves cows!

The Statesman is losing jobs while cows are making jobs.

Agriculture and natural resources produce jobs.
Got Milk? Got a job?

Ah, finally

A new employer to hire all the people in high tech industry who lost their careers, jobs, and livelihood here in the Treasure Valley. Let's all load up the wagon and move to Twin Falls, the future economic Mecca of Idaho.

Look, this is good news - a new employer in Idaho. But let's not get all dewey-eyed. Way more jobs have left Idaho during the current Republican leadership than have come in - and wages have trended downward along the way.

happy uhaul

That's a great idea for you Holdem.

The 'republican leadership' has nothing to do with the current economic downturn of the whole country. get over it.

***
If your Obama administration and his Treasury team released the capital sitting in the "too big to fail" banks to give credit to businesses who want it and can use it, the economy would boom.

Other than they're just kinda dumb and crap.

Gotta learn how to be dumb and EFFECTIVE.

Allred and BSU

I would like to know what Allred teaches at BSU for the EMBA program, AND when his last class was since Popkey writes it in present tense.

**
HEY BSU Executive MBA Program.
Lesson #1 in today's market. Keep a fresh Internet presence.

Faculty and staff- no mention of him.

And the EMBA "Complete List of Instructor" (though the list says guests)from 2009 - MOST RECENT- Allred is not there either of course:

Chairman Larry Grant said Keith Allred, is considering running in 2014.

Grant told reporter Scott Ki “There’s been talks with Keith Allred," Grant said.

"He’s already expressed an interest in maybe running again.

AND THEN
"It’s too early for me to think seriously about the 2014 election," Allred told me in an email.

duh

"Allred, however, still has his campaign website up, unlike Otter, who has disabled his Otter for Idaho website and "

***
No, he doesn't "still have it up"
- that should be, "he never turned it off".
The last update was Nov 2010. Allred left the room for ever and didn't turn off the lights.
So is he paying for that? Yes. He's wasting money!
Wow, classic for a "Harvard professor".

Otter said, "hey turn that off. There's no campaign- we don't need to pay for something we're not using."

Touchdown for Otter
Fumble for Allred.
Missed game winning field goal for Popkey.

They got 10 months to get it right, pimp then a vote...

renders it all

MOOT
