Minnick launches first TV ad, Labrador doesn’t

Idaho Congressman Walt Minnick has launched his first television commercial of the campaign season, while his Republican challenger, Raul Labrador, still hasn't been able to hit the airwaves. Minnick's ad, the first of a series, began running on Monday morning throughout the 1st Congressional District, including in the Spokane TV market, in Lewiston and on North Idaho cable. In it, he focuses on his fiscally conservative voting record in Congress, including opposing many of the major initiatives of his own party's leadership. Labrador's campaign spokeswoman had no comment on when or if his campaign will launch ads of its own; you can see Minnick's ad here, read Labrador's response to Minnick's ad here, and read my full story here at
