Labrador To Miss 27 Votes For Mitt

Raul Labrador will miss the 27 votes scheduled in the House for Wednesday to campaign for Mitt Romney in Miami, said Jake Ball, his district director. But Labrador will take a late flight back to Washington, D.C., late Wednesday and be back for votes on Thursday and Friday. Labrador leaves Idaho before dawn Wednesday to fly to Florida to help Romney appeal to Hispanic voters. "He'll be in Miami less than 24 hours," Ball said/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: The HucksOnline poll shows widespread disapproval of Congressman Raul Labrador's decision to miss 27 roll call votes today to campaign for Mitt Romney in Florida. Does this indicate Labrador's priorities this election season?
