Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) sees his failed bid to become the House majority leader as anything but a failure. Speaking with reporters in his office Friday, the outspoken conservative made clear that his late attempt to challenge Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) was just the beginning of his effort to take on an outsized role in Washington, and he wouldn't rule out making a leadership bid again. “This is a building block for something come,” he said. “I can’t tell you what that something to come is.” While some painted Labrador’s bid to replace Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) in the No. 2 GOP spot as a long shot doomed from the start, a protest campaign of sorts, Labrador said he received a much different message from lawmakers/Peter Schroeder, The Hill.

Question: Wouldn't it be a good thing for Congressman Labrador to someday when a House leadership position?
