Note: A previous version of this letter misstated the position of Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, regarding who he has supported among the 2016 GOP presidential candidates. Labrador never was a supporter of candidate Rick Santorum.
Raul Labrador, who I think was elected to represent Idahoans in the nation’s capital, would rather waste his time helping his loser friends run for president.
Raul jumped on the Rand Paul bandwagon. That’s not going so well. Apparently Rand doesn’t realize that Raul, like Sarah Palin, can be the kiss of death to a campaign.
When those we elect accomplish nothing for their constituents, those constituents tend to get agitated and disgusted.
Never miss a local story.
Raul isn’t the only one wasting Idaho’s time and money. That list includes Mike, Mike, Jim and Butch. Is it any wonder that Idaho always ranks at the bottom in so many areas? Our less than quality representation is rapidly circling the drain. Where’s Frank Church when we really need him?
Will Raul announce his own bid for president, once all the candidates he stumped for drop out?
Do it, Raul. Don’t worry about Anderson Cooper. Go for it. Just think, the first Puerto Rican president. You’ll have to show Donald Trump your birth certificate.
President Labrador, commander in chief ... Nah.
