Labrador Mum On Common Core

Kevin Richert reports that Idaho Education News has received responses from 3/4s of the Idaho congressional delegation re: their position on Common Core. Congressman Raul Labrador has remained mum:

Labrador spokesman Michael Tate said he was working on a response to Idaho Education News’ inquiry. That was Tuesday. No word since then. Is Labrador keeping quiet on this sensitive issue because he is still considering a run for the governor’s job, and he doesn’t want to box himself into a position? Or is Labrador keeping quiet because he is focusing on the immigration reform issue — where the former immigration lawyer enjoys a national profile? Either way, we’re at seven days and counting on this inquiry. Full story here.

Question: Why is Congressman Labrador not stating a position on Common Core?
