Richert: Will Minnick Be Least Powerful?

Idaho Republicans are looking to make hay from a prominent pundit’s forecast that the GOP will reclaim the House. If Republicans take control of the House, 1st District Democrat Walt Minnick would become “the least powerful congressman on Capitol Hill,” Idaho GOP victory director Phil Hardy said in a statement today. Republican challenger Raul Labrador, meanwhile, would be a prominent newcomer in a GOP House, says Hardy. “He would be one of the few Republican Hispanics in Congress outside of Florida, in a party desperately seeking to attract Hispanic voters.

Question: What will become of Congressman Walt Minnick, if he wins re-election and the Republicans take over the U.S. House?
