Sen. Mike Jorgenson, R-Hayden Lake, today issued a press release objecting to Congressman Walt Minnick’s negative campaign ad targeting GOP challenger Raul Labrador over immigration, though it takes a similar approach to a press release Jorgenson himself sent out in December of 2009 calling on Labrador to withdraw from the congressional race. In today’s release - read it here - Jorgenson says he was “appalled and disappointed” by Minnick’s ad, and said, “I cannot condemn it enough.” Here’s a link to Jorgenson’s 2009 release, which was headed, “Labrador Wrong For Idaho.”
