CQ: Will Minnick Switch To GOP?

The prospect of Democratic Rep. Walt Minnick, the least loyal Democrat in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's stable, switching parties has been raised by Republicans in a story in CQ's Roll Call. "Democratic Reps. Dan Boren (Okla.), Walt Minnick (Idaho) and Heath Shuler (N.C.) are all on the Republicans' target list. Reps. Mike McIntyre (N.C.) and Gene Taylor (Miss.) are also considered potential gets," write Anna Palmer and Steven T. Dennis. The Roll Call story, published late Monday, doesn't include a reply from the 1st District freshman who faces GOP state Rep. Raul Labrador in the Nov. 2 election. But his campaign manager, John Foster, said the former Republican who worked in the Nixon White House won't return to the GOP fold/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
