Labrador confident despite Minnick boosts

Despite high-profile boosts for incumbent Rep. Walt Minnick in the past week, from an Associated General Contractors endorsement to being the first Democrat since 2006 named a "Taxpayer Hero" by the Citizens Against Government Waste, Minnick's underfunded GOP challenger, Raul Labrador, is confident. "It's a 65 percent Republican district, and it doesn't matter what people think of him, most people think he's a nice guy - they don't want him in Congress because it's going to be the same agenda of Nancy Pelosi, Obama and Harry Reid," Labrador told Eye on Boise. "He's done absolutely nothing to stop that agenda." Also on the ballot in the November election for the 1st Congressional District seat are independent Dave Olson of St. Maries and Libertarian Mike Washburn of Boise.
