Idaho GOP congressional hopeful Raul Labrador plans to travel to his native Puerto Rico next week to raise money for his campaign against Democratic U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick, the AP reports. A campaign flier says Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuno is expected to attend a $500-per-person reception next Thursday for Labrador, who was born in the U.S. territory. Eric Labrador, a Republican who served in former Puerto Rico Gov. Pedro Rossello’s cabinet and is Labrador’s half brother, is among nine dignitaries hosting the fundraiser.
