FILE - In this Monday, Jan. 9, 2017, file photo, Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter delivers his State of the State address inside the house chambers at the state Capitol building, in Boise, Idaho. The race for Idaho's open gubernatorial seat has swerved to focus on each candidate's financial ties despite the state's lack of disclosure requirements. Idaho is one of just two states to not require elected officeholders disclose their income, employer, property holdings and board memberships. Yet the three top Republican candidates running for governor have touted their promises to be transparent if elected. No Democratic candidate has filed to run for the top seat. Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter says he's not running for a fourth term. (AP Photo/Otto Kitsinger, File)

ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, OCT. 16, 2017 AND THEREAFTER-Wayne Christopher plays the keys on a piano put out on the curb in Port Arthur, Texas, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, next to pews from the Memorial Baptist Church which he'd attended his whole life. The damage was caused by Hurricane Harvey a month earlier. "He's not too up on global warming, and that's a shame," Christopher said of the president he supported in November, and supports still. He also believes in the consensus among scientists that climate change is real and that this disastrous run of weather, from droughts in the west to wildfires to catastrophic hurricanes along the coasts, is a preview of the future if the country doesn't begin to take the problem seriously.
