GOP congressional candidate Raul Labrador, while in Washington, D.C. this week for a fundraiser and other meetings, filled in for scheduled speaker Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., yesterday at a talk at the Republican National Committee headquarters dubbed the "Fire Pelosi Speaking Series." "I am honored the RNC asked me to fill in for a visionary leader like Congressman Michelle Bachmann," Labrador said in a statement. "She is helping lead our country away from the brink of financial ruin and return it to fiscal sanity. I respect her greatly." You can see Labrador's full statement here.
