Mansfield signs on as Labrador’s new press secty

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Republican U.S. House candidate Raul Labrador has a new press secretary ahead of the May 25 primary. Dennis Mansfield, a conservative activist and businessman who volunteered on the late Republican U.S. Rep. Helen Chenoweth’s 1st Congressional District primary race in 1994, was asked by Labrador Wednesday to fill the volunteer role. Mansfield, who also helped in 2006 on former U.S. Rep. Bill Sali’s campaign, says he told Labrador he “had the time, so let’s do what we did with Helen, let’s do what we did with Bill.” Labrador faces Vaughn Ward in the GOP primary for the House seat representing western and northern Idaho. The winner will face U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick, an Idaho Democrat, in November. Labrador trails in fundraising, bringing in $35,763 in the latest quarter; Ward had $167,610, while Minnick led with $231,000.
