The Associated Press has called Idaho's 1st District congressional race in favor of GOP challenger Raul Labrador. The latest figures from the Idaho Secretary of State's office show that with 753 of 961 precincts reporting, Labrador had 50.2 percent to Minnick's 42 percent, with independent Dave Olson garnering 5.9 percent and Libertarian Mike Washburn 1.9 percent.

Minnick's campaign said on Twitter just now, "Congratulations  to Raul Labrador on a hard-earned win, and best of luck as Idaho's next Congressman."
