Simpson, Labrador split on 2 major bills

Idaho’s two GOP congressmen split their votes on two major pieces of legislation that passed the House: The highway funding bill, which passed 359-65 today; and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act reauthorization, known as the “Every Student Succeeds Act,” which passed yesterday on a bipartisan 359-64 vote and replaces the No Child Left Behind act. On both bills, 2nd District Rep. Mike Simpson voted yes, and 1st District Rep. Raul Labrador voted no/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Whenever Idaho's two congressmen split on bills, I figure that Congressman Simpson is right and Congressman Labrador is wrong. Thoughts?
