Tonight the “Idaho Debates” turn to the 1st Congressional District Republican primary race, in which candidates Raul Labrador and Vaughn Ward are vying for a chance to take on Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick in November. The debate, sponsored by the Idaho Press Club and the Idaho League of Women Voters, begins at 8 p.m. Mountain time, 7 p.m. Pacific, and will be broadcast live on Idaho Public Television, or you can watch online here. Co-sponsors of the debates include The Associated Press, Boise State Radio, Idaho Allied Dailies, Idaho State Broadcasters Association, The Idaho Statesman, KIVI-TV and KBOI-TV. I won’t be live-blogging the debate tonight, because I’m on the reporter panel. Tune in and check it out!
