What they’re promising…

When Idaho Congressman Walt Minnick and his GOP challenger, Raul Labrador, each were asked for a one- to two-sentence statement of their campaign promises, this is what they each had to say:

MINNICK:  "I am running to continue working hard for Idaho veterans, seniors and families. Whether it's fighting red tape for a small business, helping a family with an adoption or standing firm for fiscal responsibility, I promise to always do what's right for Idaho."

LABRADOR:  "I will bring true Idaho conservative values to Washington, DC.  I will always fight for my principles and the principles of the Republican Party:  limited government, lower taxes and a commitment to creating jobs without more bailouts or adding to the national debt."
