Labrador votes yes on tax plan, misses others for fundraiser

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador cast a yes vote for Congress’ tax plan overhaul in Washington D.C. after missing several votes the day before to attend a gubernatorial campaign event in Idaho. The Republican congressman attended the fundraiser Monday and then flew back east that night to make Tuesday’s vote. Labrador declined to comment when contacted by The Associated Press. None of the votes missed Monday were of particular significance for Idaho. However, critics have noticed a slight uptick in missed votes for Labrador since he began running for governor.
