Eye On Boise

Lawmakers, activist back Labrador

Among those posing for pictures with Raul Labrador after his 1st CD announcement this morning were several other lawmakers who are supporting him: Sens. Russ Fulcher and Shirley McKague, both Meridian Republicans; and Rep. Cliff Bayer, R-Boise. "I'm supporting my House colleague. I think he chose some very good words to describe his campaign, 'proven conservative leadership,'" Bayer said. "I think he has all the credentials, I think he makes a wonderful candidate." Added GOP activist and former state Sen. Rod Beck: "He has taken some tough shots for the conservative cause." Beck said he wouldn't switch his allegiance if former Congressman Bill Sali decided to enter the race. "He just waited too long," Beck said. "I wouldn't change now. I'm with Raul."
