Labrador Now A GOP 'Young Gun'

Item: Labrador now a GOP ‘Young Gun’: In reversal, he joins program that helps raise funds/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise

More Info: Idaho GOP congressional candidate Raul Labrador has ended an awkward dance with the National Republican Congressional Committee by agreeing to join its “Young Guns” candidate recruitment program, after refusing earlier. “With the election coming so quickly, I don’t want the NRCC changing our campaign themes and strategy,” Labrador said. “My campaign will reflect Idaho values, not the priorities of Washington, D.C.” But, he said, “After being assured they would not interfere with our campaign’s Idaho-focused strategy, I agreed to participate.”

Question: Will Labrador's off-again-on-again relationship with the Republican 'Young Guns' candidate recruitment program help him or hurt him now?
