Anti Pelosi Bus Rolls Toward Idaho, Minnick and Labrador Trade More Jabs


The name "Pelosi" will be nowhere near an Idaho ballot on Election Day, but Congressional hopeful Raul Labrador and his his GOP-brethren would have you think otherwise.

Labrador and what he calls "special guests" will welcome the "Fire Pelosi Bus" when it rolls through Caldwell, Saturday, Oct. 9. The nationwide bus tour is geared toward tagging Democratic candidates with allegiance to the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. That's why the California congresswoman's picture is plastered all over the bus.

Meanwhile, Labrador has released results of a poll which he commissioned, indicating that the race against Democratic incumbent Rep. Walt Minnick may be tightening. The poll of 300 voters in Idaho's First Congressional district shows Minnick with a 6 point lead, with 21 percent as undecided.

Minnick unleashed a new television ad again criticizing Raul Labrador on the immigration issue. This time, Mike Johnson, former U.S. Marshal, Ada County coroner and commissioner, lambasted Labrador for his work on immigration law. Labrador countered with a statement from another former U.S. Deputy Marshal Jack Cluff, saying using Johnson "was an embarassment." And of course, Minnick's campaign responded in turn with an endorsement from the Idaho Fraternal Order of Police.

Just 25 days to go.
