Congressional candidate Raul Labrador is happily visiting with supporters tonight at the Doubletree Riverside, where Republicans are gathering to watch the election-night results. "I think we've done a great job," Labrador said. "We had such limited fundraising but as you can tell, we had a lot of enthusiasm. We've got a lot of people who really believe in my message, and they believe I've been principled in everything I've done." Labrador had no comment on national political blogs that today have been sharply mocking his GOP primary opponent, Vaughn Ward, for everything from his campaign flubs to a video mash-up created by an Idaho legislative candidate stringing together similar turns of phrase between a Ward speech and Barack Obama's 2004 Democratic convention speech.

Said Labrador, "My goal is to help Republicans get elected, whatever happens."
