Minnick Won't Say Whether He'd Vote for Pelosi Again


Here's a follow-up to our Citydesk post, "Mr. Labrador Goes to Washington ... for Money."

We reported that when we asked (twice) Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo why he was supporting Raul Labrador over
Walt Minnick, he didn't even mention the Democratic incumbent by name, but did repeatedly refer to Minnick's 2009 vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.

Minnick campaign spokesman John Foster wasted no time to remind us that his boss "hasn't yet made any commitment in who he would or would not support for speaker next year." Minnick opposed the speaker on three headline-grabbing bills: cap-and-trade, health-care reform and stimulus spending.
