Poor Raul Labrador

"I regret that I have but one vote to give Mr. Labrador," writes Dan Welker on the Facebook page of Labrador for Idaho. "Great position statement. Now lets go get you elected!"

Welker is referring to the 1st Congressional District Candidate's position statement on illegal immigration.

"I agree with Dan," added Angela Ippolito-Cross "I regret that I have but one vote to give Mr. Labrador."

But apparently, Republican words regarding their candidate are not worth the blog windows they are printed on.

According to KBOI:

U.S. House hopeful Raul Labrador hasn't exactly gotten the help that the Idaho Republican Party promised in June when it announced the hiring of two full-time staffers to help his campaign. Idaho GOP Executive Director Jonathan Parker says one of the staffers is spending most of his time working on state races instead of Labrador's race against Democratic U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick.

and since ...

That's a shift from earlier plans. The state GOP announced in June they had requested money from Republican National Committee to hire two people, based at GOP victory offices in Coeur d'Alene and Boise, with the chief task of unseating Minnick. The hires were cited by Idaho Republicans and Labrador as evidence of key support from the national party to help offset Minnick's significant fundraising advantage.

then ...

Has the Idaho Republican Party given up on the race to unseat Minnick, realizing that their money is much better spent races where they actually have a chance?


Will the GOP support Bill Sali's heir apparent (Labrador) if he, by off chance, ends up in Washington?

Or would we be looking at another full congressional term of service with yet another a lame duck comedy act?
