Endorsement of Democrat James Piotrowski by Idaho Statesman:
We are endorsing Democrat James Piotrowski because we want more from our representative than the frequent “No” votes Republican Rep. Raul Labrador relies on — especially on spending bills where there are few other responsible choices than for Congress to vote to fund our government.
As one member of our Editorial Board put it: “We need a change.” Another said: “Labrador’s ‘No’ votes have been symbolic without impact.”
Though we easily endorsed Labrador in 2012 and 2014, today we have government-shutdown-threat fatigue, partisan politics fatigue and gridlock fatigue. We believe in team players. More here.
