Kempthorne endorses Labrador

Former Idaho governor, U.S. senator and secretary of the interior Dirk Kempthorne today endorsed Raul Labrador for Congress, saying, “The people of Idaho have been well-served by their Republican team of elected officials” and saying Labrador will be  “a fine addition to that successful team.” Kempthorne was the leading booster of Labrador’s GOP primary rival, Iraq veteran Vaughn Ward, whom Labrador defeated in May.

Labrador said, “I am very grateful to Secretary Dirk Kempthorne for this endorsement.  His long and valued service to the people of Idaho and America is a great example for all men and women in public life.  Secretary Kempthorne was esteemed by his colleagues and always represented Idahoans respectfully and with strength.  I hope to serve the people of Idaho in the same manner.” You can read the full announcement here.
