National Dem blog slams Minnick

The Daily Kos, a national Democratic liberal/progressive blog, slammed Idaho Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick over the weekend for his latest campaign commercial, which targets GOP challenger Raul Labrador over immigration. "Minnick is up 20 in the polls, while his opponent is broke and has zero institutional support (he's a teabagger who beat the establishment's choice)," Kos writes. "It's a done race, yet Minnick decides to be a bigot anyway by attacking his opponent's work as an immigration lawyer. Not only is this gratuitous, but it hurts his state's small but growing Democratic Party."

Kos concludes his post with an epithet, after writing, "Minnick has decided, for no obvious reason, to run a hateful campaign."
