Labrador responds to Minnick modified line-item veto bill

GOP challenger Raul Labrador has issued a response to 1st District Rep. Walt Minnick’s modified line-item bill being picked up by the Obama Administration and used as a model for a new administration bill. “I recognize the public relations value of Mr. Minnick’s claims, particularly this close to a tough election,” Labrador said in a statement issued late Thursday night. “But the simple fact is, the only thing that is going to stop this horrendous flow of red ink is a change in political leadership. The most effective thing we can do to arrest the irresponsible spending of this Congress is to take the gavel away from Nancy Pelosi.” You can read his full statement here; I just received it, as I was off Friday, though I did call Labrador for response Thursday as I was writing the story on the Minnick bill and waited until my deadline before filing the story without receiving it.
