The first question in today's 1st CD debate, from the audience, was about both sides' "appalling" negative ads. Minnick answered, "There is not a single fact in my advertisements that is not well-documented." Labrador said, "I think Mr. Minnick's campaign is going to go down in history as one of the most shameful in the history of Idaho." He added, "Yes, I am an immigration lawyer and I am proud to be an immigration lawyer." As the two clashed, moderator Marcia Franklin, who had to rein them in on time limits, got a big laugh from the crowd when she said, "I can see that we're off to a good start."
