(Labrador for Idaho Press Release, September 20, 2022)
Boise, ID – Idaho Attorney General Republican nominee, and former Congressman, Raúl Labrador is announcing he has agreed to debate his Democratic opponent.
“Despite the fact that my opponent is a political opportunist, who was picked in a backroom deal, I have accepted an invitation from the Idaho Debates Committee to participate in a debate with this liberal, Democratic opponent,” said Labrador.
“I look forward to defending my record and the principles our Founder’s enshrined in our state and federal Constitutions. It is critical we have an Attorney General who will not only strongly defend Idaho’s sovereignty but will also defend the laws enacted by our Legislature, as required by this role,” said Labrador.
The debate will take place on October 3rd at 8 PM MT/ 7 PM PT and will air on Idaho Public Television and stream online. “The Idaho Debates” is a collaborative effort among the Idaho Press Club, Boise State University’s School of Public Service, University of Idaho’s McClure Center, Idaho State University’s Department of Political Science, League of Women Voters’ Voter Education Fund, and Idaho Public Television.
