In his closing comments at the Boise City Club debate, GOP congressional hopeful Raul Labrador said, "On the issues where I've been called 'fringe' by some, I'm actually with the people of Idaho." He asked the audience, "Are you better off today than you were two years ago?"

Walt Minnick, in his closing comments, said, "I represent Idaho. I have represented Idaho. I'm the most independent voting member of Congress of either party. And I want to assure you that I don't represent San Francisco." He said Labrador's repeated charge during the campaign that a vote for Minnick is a vote for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is off the mark. "I am a centrist," he said. "I can work effectively out of the middle in a closely divided Congress."
