Walt & Raul Have Weird Debate Going

For the better part of a month, Congressman Walt Minnick, D-Idaho, and his Republican rival, state Rep. Raul Labrador, have been fighting about immigration. More to the point, they've been arguing over Minnick's advertising campaign about immigration. The latest, airing throughout Idaho's 1st Congressional District, has former Idaho U.S. Marshal Mike Johnson questioning Labrador's anti-illegal immigration credentials because the Eagle attorney represents immigrants. What a strange debate this is. That is, when you consider they're in tandem. On everything. Take your pick. Give Minnick a second term. Or send Labrador to Washington. Either way, your next congressman isn't going to merely take a hard line on illegal immigration. He's going after legal immigration, too/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Have you figured out which candidate has a stand similar to yours on the immigration issue?
