Another Tea Party Republican wins in Idaho
Raul Labrador won the Republican primary to represent the GOP in the Idaho CD 1 and will take on Democratic incumbent Walt Minnick in November. Minnick is in his first term and won by about 2% in 2008 and is very vulnerable; especially in such a deep red district. However, Minnick has voted against his party on a number of occasions and it looks like he's ready for a big fight this fall. Like the Senate race in Kentucky, the GOP establishment candidate, flush with money and endorsements, came in a distant second. It will be very curious in the next couple of weeks as several primaries are scheduled, including California and Nevada.
