Labrador delays decision on gubernatorial run

Idaho GOP Congressman Raul Labrador has delayed his decision on whether to mount a tea-party fueled challenge to two-term Republican Gov. Butch Otter in 2014.

At a Jan. 31 town meeting in Meridian, Labrador was urged by a member of the audience to run, which brought hearty applause. Labrador replied that he was “humbled and honored that people keep asking the question” and that he hadn’t decided.

“I will be making a decision about that in the next few months, hopefully by the middle of the year,” Labrador said. “But I’m just humbled that you would even ask that question. Thank you.” More here. Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman
