2018 Idaho Republican Primary Endorsements from the Gem State Patriot

Representative for the 1st Congressional District: The Gem State Patriot proudly endorses former State Senator Russell Fulcher.

(Click to play) Monday, I spoke with Raul Labrador on the Kevin Miller Show 580KIDO and asked him point blank why he didn’t endorse Russ Fulcher until the last week before the primary election in 2014.

Was this the Plan for Labrador All Along? What You Don’t Know about 2014

Congressman Labrador said on a local radio show that he decided to run for governor because he wanted to, not because the political bosses asked him.

Leftists and Progressives Drone on at Labrador Town Hall

As Publisher I would like to make a few observations before we get to Susan’s comments. This account by Susan proves the point I made a couple days ago on the Kevin Miller Show that this group called “Indivisible” are nothing but a bunch of obnoxious rabble rousers who shouldn’t have been permitted to attend […]

We Need to keep Conservative Congressman Labrador in Washington

We will be the first to admit that we have had our druthers about some of the past votes that Congressman Labrador has made, but he appears to have retrieved his conservative pants from the cleaners and has shown a rather solid streak of proper conservative voting in the past year. It is unfortunate that […]
