Lieutenant Gov. Brad Little is running again in 2014, hoping to secure a second elected term.
Little made the announcement Wednesday in Emmett, his hometown about 40 miles northwest of Boise.
The 59-year-old Republican rancher and businessman was appointed in 2009 by Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter after former Lt. Gov. Jim Risch's U.S. Senate election. He was re-elected in 2010.
With Otter planning to seek a third term, Little appears content to remain in the part-time, $35,100-per-year job as the governor's fill-in.
