Labrador says he jumped in early to endorse Rand Paul, because he waited too long to back Romney in ‘12

Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador says he waited too long before endorsing Mitt Romney for president in the last presidential election, limiting his influence; that’s why he’s decided to get in early this time, endorsing Rand Paul for the GOP nomination and joining his campaign team, reports Bill Dentzer of the Idaho Statesman. Meanwhile, the other three members of Idaho’s all-GOP congressional delegation, Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch and Congressman Mike Simpson, all told Dentzer they’re not committing yet to any of the array of candidates jostling for the GOP presidential nomination. “At this point there are a number of them that I really like,” Crapo said. Dentzer’s full report is online here.
