(BOISE, ID) – Lt. Gov. Brad Little will be making stops in eastern Idaho this week. On Thursday, Little will be at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. at Hess Pumice in Malad. Then he’ll make stops in Driggs and Rexburg on Friday afternoon. Since Gov. Butch Otter has indicated that he’ll seek a third term, Little is hoping to maintain his fill-in role in next year’s gubernatorial election as well. The 59-year-old Emmett native was appointed to his current position by Otter as a replacement for Jim Risch, after Risch was elected the U.S. Senate in 2008.
