In 2010, a friend suggested I take a second look at then-congressional candidate Raul Labrador. She told me he would be a rising star in the Republican Party, and that he would help take our conservative Idaho values to make significant changes in Washington, D.C.
From his first appearance on “Meet the Press,” and every national interview thereafter, he espouses our conservative values and has helped to change the national debate. It’s no wonder the Mitt Romney campaign has invited him onto the trail to help outreach to voters the GOP has had a difficult time reaching in the past.
He makes us proud. And congressman, if you have to miss a few votes to do it, so be it.
