Labrador says he had ‘an amazing time’ running for House majority leader

Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador issued this statement after using the race for U.S. House majority leader to Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif: “I want to congratulate Kevin on his election as Majority Leader and I wish him the best.  I had an amazing time running for this position.  It was one of the best experiences I’ve had in Congress.  I really enjoyed talking with my colleagues one-on-one about the future of our conference and the direction of our party.  Everyone I spoke to, whether they voted for Kevin or me, agrees that we can do better.  The process needs to be improved, the committees need to work their will, and our members need to feel more relevant.  We have a terrific conference – filled with talented, impressive leaders – and I deeply believe that the dialogue we’ve sparked over the past week will lead to a stronger, more successful future for House Republicans and America.”
