Idaho Democrat: Challenger missing 'again' from NRCC support list

Rep. Walt Minnick (D-Idaho) chuckled on Twitter Tuesday after an article revealing the National Republican Campaign Committee's plan for ad buys didn't mention his race.

"Someone's missing. Again," Minnick tweeted Tuesday, referring to his challenger, Republican state Rep. Raul Labrador.

Labrador had also been left out of the NRCC's "Young Guns" promotions in June and July. He defeated Iraq War veteran Vaughn Ward — a committee favorite — in the May primary.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved time in the district.

Minnick, a one-term incumbent, voted 'no' on health care and 'no' on the stimulus bill. He reported a significant cash-on-hand advantage — $1.1 million to Labrador's $69,000 — at the end of June.
