RLC Encourages Election of Raul Labrador for Majority Leader
Industry: Politics & Political Organizations
Republicans desiring a return to small-government roots by the party would be well-represented by Labrador.
United States (PRUnderground) June 16th, 2014
The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) announced a resolution of its National Board, today, urging Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho to run for Majority Leader of the House.
“Labrador’s election as Majority Leader,” according to RLC National Chair Matt Nye, “would represent an acknowledgement by House members that Eric Cantor’s primary loss last week is a sign that new ideas are gaining influence in the Party. More and more, Republicans are asking that the Party return to its small government roots, and Labrador represents that element of the Party well.”
After Labrador’s name was mentioned as a potential candidate for Majority Leader, the RLC National Board looked at the options, reviewed Labrador’s history—which includes a 90% rating on the RLC’s most recent Liberty Index—and determined that Labrador was an exceptional candidate for the position.
