Trib: Labrador digs hole for himself

In his editorial today, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune comments:

One of the worst kept secrets in Idaho politics is Congressman Raul Labrador's apparent interest in filling C.L. "Butch" Otter's shoes when the Republican governor's tenure ends in a couple of years.

At the moment, however, Labrador is occupied securing his fourth term in the House against Democratic challenger Jim Piotrowski.

In last week's televised debate between Labrador and Piotrowski, co-moderator Jim Weatherby asked a pertinent question: Is Labrador going to run for governor in 2018? And if so, would Labrador be phoning in his work to Washington, D.C., for the next two years while he campaigns for the job in Boise? More here.

Question: Would you like to see Raul Labrador run for governor in two years.
