Labrador names campaign team as he seeks 4th House term

Idaho 1st District Congressman Raúl Labrador has announced his campaign team, as the Republican seeks a fourth term in the U.S. House; he faces Democrat James Piotrowski, a Boise labor attorney in the November election.

"Representing the people of the 1st Congressional District is a tremendous honor and I do not take their support for granted," Labrador said. "As their elected representative, I have a responsibility to tell the people of Idaho what I am doing to represent them and why I am asking for their vote.  As I prepare for the future, I'm excited that we've put together one of the best political teams in Idaho and I'm looking forward to sharing my vision for a stronger Idaho and a more prosperous nation."

His campaign manager will be China Gum, who also managed his 2012 re-election campaign and has been serving as a senior political advisor to Labrador. Daniel Tellez, who most recently was digital and communications director for the Idaho Republican Party, will be his field coordinator.

Labrador also named a cadre of consultants: Michael Clingaman and Anthony Bonna, Stoneridge Group, who will oversee online engagement, messaging and digital strategy, direct mail, and voter contact; Brock Lowrance and Jon Downs from FP1 Strategies, messaging and political advertising; and Glen Bolger and Robert Blizzard, Public Opinion Strategies, for political strategy and polling.

In addition, he named Vicki and Lamont Keen and Milford Terrell as finance co-chairs; and Norm Semanko, former Idaho GOP chairman, as head of a coalition of 19 county leadership teams.
