GOP congressional hopeful Raul Labrador has launched his first TV ad of the campaign, which just started running in the Boise market. In it, he sharply criticizes incumbent Congressman Walt Minnick on immigration, economic stimulus and health care reform, and declares, “Minnick’s hiding his liberal Obama/Pelosi record.” Minnick, who voted against both the economic stimulus bill and the health care reform bill, immediately denounced the new ad as “misleading” and “false.” You can watch it here; coming soon, a look at the claims and counter-claims.
