Tea Party Shootout In Idaho: Ward Faces Labrador For Right To Battle Minnick

Idaho will be the only state in the nation to hold a primary today. The most closely watched race in the Gem State concerns the First Congressional District Republican nomination. This particular race and the follow-on general election battle highlight a divide among local and national Tea Party supporters: state Rep. Raul Labrador is endorsed by Tea Party Boise, a local Idaho Tea Party group, Vaughn Ward is endorsed by Idaho native and national Tea Party spokeswoman Sarah Palin, and Democrat Walt Minnick carries the endorsement of the Tea Party Express, a national organization.
