Labrador on GOP primary win: ‘Conservative principles matter’

The AP has called the congressional races in Idaho’s GOP primary, naming the winners as incumbents Raul Labrador, Mike Simpson and Mike Crapo. Crapo was unopposed; both Labrador and Simpson faced only little-known primary challengers.

Labrador issued this statement:

"I want to thank the people of Idaho for their support tonight.  Becca and I are so grateful for all of the volunteers who spent countless hours supporting our campaign. It's beyond humbling to be entrusted with their vote. Tonight's vote sends a strong signal to the rest of the country that conservative principles matter. We need leaders who have a steadfast commitment to conservative principles, new, fresh solutions to today's challenges, and a willingness to stand up to entrenched interests. With the support of the people of Idaho behind me, I look forward to taking on the challenges we are facing in Washington.”
