The Partisan Voting Index score for Idaho's 1st Congressional District is R+21, meaning in the past two presidential elections, the district was an average of 21 points more Republican than the country overall, explained the Huffington Post.

Labrador is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, who unsuccessfully ran for majority leader in 2014.

Labrador, accompanied by his wife, Becca, and his campaign treasurer, Milford Terrell, signed the necessary forms to launch his gubernatorial campaign in Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney's office in the Idaho Capitol on Tuesday morning.

Labrador has received criticism for his comment Friday that no one has died because they didn't have access to health care - a claim disputed by medical experts because they counter that patients without health coverage often risk waiting until their conditions have advanced too far for effective treatment.

In a note on Facebook after the comments, Labrador said his comment "wasn't very elegant", but argued that he was right because hospitals have to treat people in need of emergency care. In an Idaho town hall meeting on May 5, an attendee asked Rep. Raúl Labrador about the impact the GOP bill would have on Medicaid recipients specifically.

Four new Ottawa grocery stores approved to sell beer and cider
Beer must be stocked in designated areas, can only be sold in six-packs and singles, and costs the same as beer at LCBO stores. The addition of these new outlets will bring the provincial total to 206 authorized locations.

Dean Ferguson, interim executive director of the Idaho Democratic Party, said Labrador's filing was "good news". "He was back in Washington D.C. working the talk shows. This is a good day for Idaho, unless he succeeds in the Republican primary, but we'll rely on our Republican friends to make sure he doesn't". In addition, one Democrat, Troy Minton, and three independents, Lisa Marie, Michael Richardson and John Thomas Wiechec, also have filed. Most expected Labrador to run for governor.

"When you have an open seat like that it really is a different dynamic", Ferguson said. "Without that it becomes a much wider, open race for both Republicans and Democrats". In what was considered an upset, Labrador defeated front-runner Vaughn Ward in a 2010 Republican primary race for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Running for governor of the great state of Idaho takes serious preparation.

"I look forward to working with him in the House and that's going to be an awesome experience", Crane said.
