Idaho GOP Chairman Norm Semanko says his party will come together no matter which candidate wins the hard-fought congressional primary between Raul Labrador and Vaughn Ward; the latest results, with 89 percent of precincts reporting, show Labrador with 46 percent to 40 percent for Ward. “It’s been interesting, here you had one person (Ward) who got in very early, several people who got in in the middle period, and one person (Labrador), very late,” Semanko said. “I don’t think there’s a right way to do it.”
He said his one disappointment about the primary is the low turnout: “There’s so much attention and so much focus, and yet the turnout is so low.”
