Realtors endorse Minnick, Simpson, Crapo

The Idaho Association of Realtors has announced its endorsement of the re-election bids of Idaho Congressmen Walt Minnick and Mike Simpson and Sen. Mike Crapo. Julie DeLorenzo, the group's president, said, "Our congressional delegation has consistently demonstrated their pro-business, pro-private property rights beliefs in Congress. These three individuals are a tremendous asset to the State of Idaho, and the IAR enthusiastically supports their re-election this November.” Of Minnick, she said, "We admire Walt's common-sense, fiscally conservative approach to serving in Congress, and we also appreciate how hard he and his staff work for us, for other small-business owners and for Idaho. Like Sen. Crapo and Rep. Simpson, Rep. Minnick puts Idaho first. Our association and our state are fortunate to have such a respected, hard-working delegation."

Minnick, a freshman Democrat, faces a challenge from two-term GOP state Rep. Raul Labrador of Eagle, along with an independent and a Libertarian; Crapo is seeking his third term in the Senate and has two challengers; and Simpson, who is seeking his seventh term in the House, faces a challenge from Democrat Mike Crawford of Mountain Home and independent Briad Schad of Idaho Falls.
