"U.S. House hopeful Raul Labrador’s cash-strapped campaign has moved to downtown Boise to conserve resources, setting up a new headquarters outside the congressional district he wants to represent," the Idaho Press Tribune Reports.
Give Labrador credit for being frugal. He's promoting Idaho grittiness and thrift!
The penny-saving move underscores Labrador’s difficulty in fundraising compared to his Democratic rival, U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick, who has more than $1 million on hand and holds a 16 to 1 cash advantage, the Associated Press Reports.
So what? Money can't buy you love. (hat tip to the Beatles)
Labrador’s camp says the downtown Boise office will allow them to work as a team with other Republican candidates.
The campaign reported about $68,700 in cash on hand in mid-July and Labrador was in Washington, D.C. on a fundraising trip last week. The trip included a breakfast hosted by Republicans in Idaho’s congressional delegation Thursday.
Between 20 and 25 people came to the event at The Capitol Hill Club, Labrador said.
"Between 20 and 25 people." Wow! That's such a wide spread that he couldn't even give us an exact count!
Start worrying, Walt!
