Labrador, Ward Spar @ Tea Party Debate

Raul Labrador (pictured) also came out fighting and really showed his experience well. He had a direct and calm tone to his delivery and answered questions well. Labrador was prepared and had a great line when talking about global warming. Labrador said, "Global warming does exist and it’s man made, it’s coming from all the hot air in Washington DC." Labrador said that he is the only one on the stage who has actually fought against reforms. ”We told the federal government to shove it.” Speaking of the Idaho Health Freedom act, which authorized Idaho to sue the federal government over National Health Care. He said of his opponents, "They're all going to stand up and they're all going to tell you that they will fight the federal government, I'm the only one who has actually fought the federal government." On Immigration Labrador said of Ward, "Do you want to send somebody to Washington, D.C., who doesn't even understand immigration law?" Labrador said he has not taken a position on Arizona’s new immigration law/Idaho Conservative Blogger. More here.
