Eye On Boise

Campaigns clash over new Minnick ad

GOP congressional hopeful Raul Labrador issued a statement tonight calling Congressman Walt Minnick’s new campaign ad “disgusting,” “disgraceful” and “shameful,” and saying it “succeeds in only twisting and editing my words into quotes that are blatantly untrue.” He also demands that Minnick immediately remove “this sleazy, degrading ad.” You can read Labrador’s full statement here. Meanwhile, Minnick campaign manager John Foster said in a statement, “Raul’s clients may deserve fair representation, but so do the people of Idaho. These are very tough times, and people deserve to know the truth about their candidates.” Minnick’s campaign also sent out a fact sheet citing the sources for the statements used in the ad, with links; you can see it here. Phil Hardy, Labrador’s communications director, sent out his own version in an email to the media tonight; you can read it here.
