CPAC Endorses Raul Labrador for Attorney General, Bryan Smith for Congress

By • May 6, 2022

The Conservative Political Action Committee has endorsed Raul Labrador for Attorney General and Bryan Smith for Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District.

The endorsements were announced by Matt Schlapp, the Chairman of the American Conservative Union, which runs CPAC. The ACU has released congressional scorecards since 1971, according to the CPAC website.

Here is what Schlapp posted about Labrador,

Rep. Raúl R. Labrador was a stalwart conservative in Congress boasting a 96% lifetime ACU rating. He will now continue that conservative mission as the next Attorney General in Idaho fighting back against the Biden administration’s disastrous agenda. CPAC is proud to endorse Raúl.

Labrador was an Idaho congressman for Idaho’s 1st Congressional District from 2006 to 2010. There are three people in the AG’s race for the Republican nomination: Incumbent Lawrence Wasden, Labrador, and Art Macomber.

Wasden has held the seat since 2003.

Smith is challenging current Congressman Mike Simpson. Simpson has been serving in the seat since 1999.

Here is what Schlapp said on the Smith endorsement,

CPAC endorses Bryan Smith for Idaho’s 2nd Congressional district. He stands for securing our elections and protecting our nation’s borders. We are proud to support him!

Idaho’s primary election is May 17, although early voting is underway until next Friday.
