GOP candidate for governor Russ Fulcher called a press conference for this morning on short notice – sending the notice out late last night – promising a “big announcement.” Opening the conference, Fulcher joked, “I’m here to let you know that both Ronald Reagan and Elvis have decided to endorse my campaign.” Then he said, “Actually, I want to introduce you to someone that you already know and that has had a big impact on me, and that is our congressman, Raul Labrador.” Labrador then gave Fulcher his endorsement.
