Mansfield Joins Labrador Campaign

State Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Eagle, looks to have a more lively campaign in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District, as he announced Wednesday that he is bringing on blogger and political expert Dennis Mansfield to serve as his press secretary.  Labrador’s campaign went silent for over a month, from March 23 to April 26, when he sent out a press release accepting the endorsement of a statewide pro-life group. Mansfield, who, in 2000 ran for the seat that Labrador and fellow Republicans Vaughn Ward and Harley Brown now seek, endorsed Labrador on his blog early Wednesday morning because he believes Labrador stands “head and shoulders” over Ward/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter.

Question: How do we handle Dennis' blog posts until the primary race is over?
