Popkey: Media Discovers Labrador

It’s been a busy week for Congressman Raul Labrador’s spokesman. Three times, Michael Tate has alerted reporters that major new outlets have — for the umpteenth time — hailed his boss as a key player on immigration reform. On Friday, Tate circulated a cut-and-paste of the latest subscription-only story in National Journal. Headlined “Don’t Call Him Marco Rubio,” reporter Tim Alberta quotes a House GOP aide as saying Labrador is “more important to getting (immigration reform) passed through Congress than Marco Rubio” because of his influence with conservatives. Rubio, of course, is the telegenic Cuban-American senator from Florida and presidential prospect/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Is it good or bad for Idaho's image that the national media are spotlighting Congressman Raul Labrador?
