Labrador Launches Re-election Effort

Idaho Republican Rep. Raúl Labrador is kicking off his campaign to hold on to his District 1 Congressional seat this week even though he has no serious competition in the primary. He’s holding several campaign kickoff events and then heading the Salt Lake City Thursday to speak with western Republicans. I’m covering the race so we spoke briefly Monday. Meanwhile Democratic Idaho State Rep. Shirley Ringo, of Moscow, was campaigning in Lewiston Monday. The former teacher, who Labrador i expected to face in the Fall,  spoke to students at Lewis and Clark State College and 5th graders. Labrador said he would run on his record of keeping the promises he made when he first ran in 2010 and was reelected in 2012. He called on repealing the Affordable Care Act and cutting the federal deficit and sought to stop the healthcare law implementation by shutting down the government/Rocky Barker, Idaho Statesman.

Question: If you voted for Raul Labrador two years ago, do you plan to vote for him again?
