CNN cites ‘rosy outlook’ in 1st CD race for ‘Tea Party’s favorite Democrat’

CNN’s “Political Ticker” has a piece on Idaho’s 1st District congressional race today, headed, “A rosy outlook for the Tea Party’s favorite Democrat.” Its take: Incumbent Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick, “who defied the odds in 2008 … seems poised to confound expectations yet again.” The report finds Minnick looking strong against GOP challenger Raul Labrador, despite the heavily Republican makeup of the 1st CD, saying, “The Democratic incumbent has GOP roots as solid as his state’s.” But it warns that spending from outside groups could be a wild card in the race.
