Freshman Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador, in response to a question about term limits at the Boise City Club today, said, “This is actually an area where I have changed in the last eight months. I believe that we need term limits in politics, especially congressional politics.” He said in his months in Washington, D.C., “I have heard people actively voice openly that the reason that theyre not making the tough decisions they have to make … is because they're worried about the next election.” Asked by moderator Jim Weatherby if his change of heart on term limits extends to state offices as well, Labrador said, “Yes.”
